Hi, I have a query regarding the selection of participants for Amritapuri. In the point number 3, the top team for each college will be checked after removing the top 30 right, as stated explicitly in Kanpur?


The rules written for amritapuri have been modified recently because earlier it was not mentioned that teams are skipped whose institute’s any team is already selected from rule number 1 & 2 ? and if they have been modified then how can the rules be modified after the contest.

It is not modified, this is what earlier rule meant as well. Multiple participants were asking same query again and again hence I updated so that just everyone dont ask the same thing again. What do you get by top team from the institute? Isn’t it very obvious that if top team is already selected, why would one more team be considered again?


Criteria by which site preference will be handled (for multi-site regionals) ?

Regionals will release that when they are ready with results.
