Additional Considerations:

In case of an incomplete answer or some other dispute, the Judges will consult among themselves then they will either:

a) Award partial credit (+1 point) or (in case of a serious dispute)

b) Void the question  altogether, in which case the participant will not receive any points

In case of a Tie, additional questions will be asked. The Winner and the Runner-up will be determined based on their Net Scores

Handling of Tie:

At the end of each round, the Judges will look at the Net Score of each participant and ask these questions:

a) Is there a “Clear Winner”?

b) Is there a “Clear Runner-up”?

If the answer to both questions is “Yes” the Judges will consider that Level as “completed” and they will inform the Moderator.

If the answer to even one question is “No” then there must be a “Tie”. Judges will identify those who have Tie and ask rest of the participants to step back (they will not be asked any more questions). The participants, who remain on the podium, will be asked additional questions, to break the Tie.
