Judging criteria:

The contestants will be judged on the following points:

  • Least weight
    • The least average weight among the contestants will be adopted as the datum, say D kg. Teams with average weight of their cubes falling within D kg and (D + 5% of D) kg will proceed for the oral round. In case the number of teams falling within this range is low, then the top five teams with the lowest average weights will proceed for the oral round.
    • The next section is applicable to only those teams that qualify for the oral round.
    • Points awarded for the least weight will be equal to (2.5 – w)*25, where ‘w’ is the average weight of the three cubes in kg.
    • Note: Only teams scoring positive points in this will proceed to the next stage. For example, if the average weight of the cubes turn out to be 2.6 kg then points awarded will be (2.5-2.6)*25= -2.5, in which case the contestants automatically fail to qualify, even if the team finishes in the top five.
