        Definitions of time restraints:

  • Cutoff:
  • A time restraint under which a competitor must yield a result in his/her first attempts, as specified. Otherwise, the competitor is not allowed further attempts.

    • Time limit:
    • A time restraint at which the judge stops the attempt immediately and records the result as DNF ("Did Not Finish").

      • Cumulative time limit:
      • A time limit across all attempts during a round. When the elapsed solve time reaches the cumulative time limit during an attempt, the judge stops the attempt immediately and records the result for that attempt as DNF, and records DNS for all subsequent attempts. The time elapsed in a DNF result counts towards the cumulative time limit.

        NOTE: If you know you cannot solve under the time limit for an event, please refrain from registering for that event. This really helps the organisation team with accurate scheduling and the ability to better maintain our strict schedule.

        For a deeper understanding of terminology used, please refer to the WCA Regulations.
