VISTA 2012-2013: Round One

This Monday September 10, the competition for VISTA 2012-2013 will officially begin with the opening of Round One. From midnight all registered teams will be able to access the first round of questions, and will have exactly three weeks to submit their answers.

When Round One opens, a new link will appear on this site, which will be a clearly marked green button. Once logged-in, users will be able to download all thirty questions for the round, and can begin answering questions immediately.

Some questions will be in the form of multiple choice, where teams will need to choose one or more options from a list of possible answers. Other questions will be free text, where teams will need to write out full answers. For as long as the round is open, any team member can add, change or review any of the answers. When the team is satisfied with all their final answers, they can select ‘submit answers’.

Once answers have been submitted, they cannot be changed, so review them carefully and make sure your whole team is in agreement first.

Round One will close at midnight on September 30, and answers will not be accepted if they have not been formally submitted.

Remember, start as soon as you can and don’t leave it until the last minute. The more time you can dedicate to VISTA, the better you will do. Check your answers and do your research – even if you’re sure you already know the answer. And most importantly, work together as a team and help one another out.

Good luck!
