Round Two Preview

The competition for VISTA 2011 resumes this week, as participants from all over the world get ready for Round Two. From midnight (CET time) this Sunday, 15th November, teams will receive an additional 30 questions and given exactly two weeks to submit their answers. “The basic set up will be very similar to Round One, but the level of difficulty will have to increase,” says Göran Adielson from the VISTA development team.

With only one round having passed so far, the competition is still wide open, and Round Two will be vital in separating teams apart, as well as allowing others to catch up. “Round One was just the beginning, and even if your team didn’t do particularly well, you have every chance of getting back in the competition in Round Two,” stresses Göran. “The competition is very hard. A lot of teams did well in Round One, so no one should be complacent either.”

However regardless of results, Round Two promises to be a worthwhile experience for all participants. “We got a lot of positive feedback from Round One with a lot of participants saying they learnt a lot and discovered information they didn’t even know was there,” continues Göran. “This is always great to hear because this is essentially what VISTA is all about, and in Round Two I hope all participants learn even more.”

The deadline for Round Two is at midnight on November 28th. This is the second of three rounds of theoretical questions, with Round Three starting early next year.
