Individual Countdown

Up to 10% of high-scoring competitors will advance to compete in the Individual Countdown. Individual scores are calculated by adding the number of Sprint Round questions answered correctly and twice the number of Target Round questions answered correctly.  The maximum possible Individual Score is 30 + 2(8) = 46.

 

Team Countdown

Up to 15% of high-scoring teams will advance to compete in the Team Countdown.  Team score is calculated by dividing the sum of the team members’ Individual Scores by four (even if the team has fewer than four members) and adding twice the number of Team Round questions answered correctly.  The maximum possible Team Score is ((46 + 46 + 46 + 46) / 4) + 2(10) = 66.
