  • Best Score wins (Most Correct Answers)    

In case of a Tie:

  • If Best Score is tied in any of the top five positions, accuracy breaks the tie (questions answered correct / total number of questions answered).
  • If Best Score and Accuracy are tied - Starting at question 1, the most Consecutive Correct answers breaks the tie.
  • If there is still a tie - Lowest Average Time per correct answer (to the tenth of a second) breaks the tie. 
  • Manual Judging can be done if there is still a tie using 1/1000th of a second increments.
