Disclaimer:

All data in this article was taken from leader board and public user profiles. All the statistics and opinions in this article have NO official character, being made on request of competitors, and from the author’s own/personal interpretation.

First at all you must know that all results obtained in Round 1 are not relevant to the Round 2.

This year section was marked by the new site for hosting the competition. A new element has its own weaknesses and that we can deal only through collaboration, communication and feedback.

Started in September, Round 1 was one of the most comprehensive comparing with previous years.

Also, the competition format was changed from one hour at a specific date to 24 hours format, allowing students from around the world to compete at the times most suitable for them.

This change, including more generalist format of questions, the period of time for holding the round I, resulted in qualitatively better results this year.  We mention that there were two scores close to maximum (29) but we have not had the joy of achieving the maximum score (30 points).

Special congratulations to:

  • ITGod – Paris Descartes University from France – 29 points in Quiz 1
  • biggerCC – Universität Rostock from Germany – 29 points in Quiz 4

Now let’s see some general information about Round 1:

  • Participating Countries: 96
  • Registered students: more than 20k
  • Effective Competitors: more than 6500
  • Competitors qualified in Round 2: ~1475!!!
  • Total attempts: more than 8400!
  • Number of attempts with Score 0: ~320
  • Total average of score without 0 scores: ~11,33

Some statistics on the results by Competitors

From my point of view, the greatest competitors were all who manage to compete in almost all quizzes. There were 4 competitors that participates in all quizzes and 18 of them participating in 7 quizzes.

This is the table of honor for Round 1 (all of them with 8 presences).
