If we are selecting Indian teams through TSC then what about the winners of ISC 2014 ? Will it a 8 members team?

Hi, i would suggest don't make any assumption based on last year's. Things might change or it might remain same. No one knows it until contest begins.
But of course you can use past things for your practice.
Good Luck :)

I assume registration is probably a way for them to plan ahead knowing the number of participants, so I'd probably be on the safe side and ask your friends to register too.

I recall that last year they allowed one person per registration in some cities. So better to have your friends registered.

It would be good if this time, TOI can provide certificates to the finalists.
It hurts wwhen after being chosen as a finalist from a city and still have no proof to show.

You can always carry a copy of the newspaper photo and article after you qualified in the regional round :D ...

This was in a lighter note :)

Check this: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sudoku.cms

It looks similar to previous years. Basically, the number of people registering would be much more than what can be accommodated in a single group. So there will be multiple preliminary rounds with different groups of people and a few people will be chosen from each of these rounds to proceed to the regional final round which will be held later in the day.

I tried TOISUDM Prasanna23 and got an immediate response. The only possible error I see is the number entered.

So you sms-ed and got the timing of 10 AM? Typically that makes you an early batch participant, and so yes, you will have an interval. I'd advise you mainly to make sure you give the right contact details in the first round sheet, so that if you do qualify, they'll be able to contact you easily to notify. Also, don't go too far away from the venue of course, so that you can reach back in time for the next round.

The second round is typically longer and then there's the time taken to check and decide the winners, all of this combined is what takes it to 5 and such. If I remember right, in Mumbai, last year we were called for the 2nd round at 2 PM.

All of this information is assuming it is the same format as last year. So don't take any of it as a given unless an organizer confirms it.
