* In events with a "cutoff," every competitor gets two attempts to complete a solve faster than the cutoff time. If you complete at least one of your two attempts faster than the cutoff time, you will be allowed three more solves (for a total of five attempts). Otherwise, your best time will be recorded as your result.

** These time limits are strict times after which the judge will stop you and your result will be recorded as a DNF (Did Not Finish). Once you have recorded two DNFs, your average will be recorded as DNF.

*** Most events are an average of 5 format. This means you will complete five solves, and we will eliminate the fastest and slowest times and average the middle three together. See the WCA regulations for more details.
