IMPORTANT DETAILS ON THE UPCOMING SULVME MATHS COMPETITION GRANDFINALE COMING UP ON 22ND JUNE 2019 by Iykman 4 weeks ago

Overview of the SMC Grand-Finale

The second round of the SMC Season 2 is a fast placed head to head competition. It is an oral round and is designed to be the final round in all sulvme mathematics competitions. The winner of this round will be considered the overall winner of this competition alone and his/her achievements will not be used to determine qualification for the next season of our competition. This second round consists of the Qualifying/Sprint round, the Eight final/Sweet Sixteen round, the Quarter final/Elite eight round, the semi final/final four round and the finals. In the Qualifying/Sprint

Round, the students paired in fours comes up stage to compete amongst themselves also in this round, only one question will be asked and the fastest correct answer will move on to the next round while the other candidates will be automatically eliminated. This is a very sensitive round as any student who gives an incorrect answer to any question will be automatically eliminated and the question will be nullified.

The next rounds will feature matches where students are pitted head to head. Three questions will be displayed by a projector but individually so that whoever gets the correct answer will be given a point for the answer. The student who gets the most out of the three questions and may not necessarily be two questions will be the winner of the round and moves over to the next round while his opponent is eliminated. The time allotted to the eight finals, quarter finals, semi finals and the finals vary. Apart from the Qualifying round, if a student gives an incorrect answer, he/she will not be penalized rather his opponent will have the entire of the remaining time to answer the question and since all questions have options, the opponent will be at an advantage as he/she will have less than one option to choose from.

How the 64 students are grouped in fours

This is done using the seeding method. From the result of the preliminary round, the 64 students are divided into four from the first to the sixty fourth positions and then the positional details of each candidate will be picked from the four groups to form a set.

ABOUT SMC SEASON 2 GRAND-FINALE

This is a single elimination or knock out round where a total of 64 and 65 students from the junior and senior categories respectively who has qualified from the first round which was written on the 15th of June, 2019 will compete for Gold, Silver and the Bronze medals by passing a series of hurdles to make it to the final round.

Important Technical Details

The qualified candidates have been paired in four's through the 'seeding' technique which is done based on the students score and rank in the preliminary round of the mathematics competition.

There will be a total of five different rounds in this competition, where the questions in the next round would be tougher than the ones in the previous round.

Qualifying Round (Sprint)

There will be a total of 16 groups with each one having four students. For the senior category, one of the groups will have five students as the case presents.

The four students in each of these groups will be called up stage and assessed. Only one student from each of the sixteen groups will emerge from this round and move over to the next round while the others are automatically eliminated.

Mode of the Qualifying Round

Once the four students are ready on stage, a question will be displayed on the screen having a timer of 40 seconds. The fastest correct answer makes it to the next round thereby eliminating the other candidates. In this round, if a candidate gives an incorrect answer to a question, such student is automatically eliminated and the question will be nullified. A total of 16 students are expected to emerge from this round and move down to the Eight finals

 

Eight Finals (Sweet Sixteen)

A total of sixteen students who made it to this round will be paired in two's, thereby making eight groups. The pairing will be done using the same 'seeding technique' which was applied initially in the previous round.

Mode of the Eight Finals Round

Once the candidates from the rounds are ready for their match, three questions will be displayed on the screen individually having a timer of 45 seconds. Whoever answers the most out of the three questions and this is not necessarily two questions out of the three will make it to the next round and his/her opponent eliminated. Should the scores be tied after the three questions, then the sudden victory procedure will be initiated where the next student who gives the correct answer to a question wins the match and moves over to the next round. If a student gives an incorrect answer in this round, he/she will not be penalized rather the remaining time will be left for the opponent as well as an increased advantage as an incorrect option has already been eliminated so he/she now has three options to choose from.

 

Quarter Finals (Elite Eight)

A total of eight students from the quarter finals makes it to this round

Mode of the Semi Finals Round

The same mode for the quarter finals applies here only that the time for each question is extended to 50 seconds.

 

Semi Finals (Final Four)

This round will determine the two contestants for First place (Gold Medal) and the other two contestants for Third place (Bronze Medal)

Mode of the Semi Finals Round

The same mode for the quarter finals applies here only that the time for each question is extended to 60 seconds

 

Finals & Third Place

This round determines the Gold, Silver and Bronze medalist of the Sulvme Mathematics Competition Season 2. The two winners of the semi finals are paired to determine the First and second positions while the two losers of the semi finals are paired to determine the Third position.

Mode of the Final Round

Once the candidates are ready for their match, three questions will be displayed on the screen individually each having a timer of 60 seconds. Whoever answers the most out of the three questions and this is not necessarily two questions out of the three wins either the first or third place as the case may be. Should the scores be tied after the three questions, then the sudden victory procedure will be initiated where the next student who gives a correct answer to a question wins. If a student gives an incorrect answer in this round, he/she will not be penalized rather the remaining time will be left for the opponent as well as an increased advantage as an incorrect option has already been eliminated so he/she now has less number of options to choose from.

Please Note

Even though it's unlikely that while the host reads the questions he might misspeak; should this happen, then the question showing on the board will be considered the official problem
