Do people normally get States/Regionals tests back?

I was wondering how common it is to get tests back at regionals/states since we don’t. I’m also wondering when people get there tests back if they do (as in before or after awards, a week later, etc) Also, do any states or regionals release score distributions? If an grading error is found on a retu...

Yikes. What’s the point of nats (or any competition) if they’re just going to reuse a test?

Why doesn’t scioly have a rule against copying past tests/ large portions of past tests?

Staying Motivated

Sometimes, it feels like people (including me) are pretty motivated up to Regionals, and then not as motivated up to States. There are no major academic things happening the month before/after States.

Is there any way to keep everyone motivated all the way up to States?

Re: Easiest event for you? Opinions! :3

Sounds, if I'm with my partner. My partner does the music theory and I do the physics (sounds has arguably the easiest calculations between the sounds, circuit, and thermo) and the build is basically an applied formula no matter what instrument you decide to build. Crime was pretty easy too, except ...

Re: Funny School Stories!

One kid asked a question about our finals and our math teacher responded with, "Do you want to be lynched?" Our best guess as to why is because we have been studying TKAM in English and someone had been talking about lynching while the math teacher was listening. She also once left another period fo...

Arpitr20 is in imminent danger. Suddenly, DatSciolyBoi notices that something is up and the pawn that is currently Arpitr20 takes one of my pawns, missing the obvious move, however. Danger still lurks... and so does my victory. Here's a neat little puzzle: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <p>This is dangerou...

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

Scioly things that keep me up at night: Sometimes I think about amazing partners who I took for granted because I thought they would be my partner again next year but turns out they won't and I feel sad :( I got 10th at states in disease, which is pretty sucky, but I'm an officer now, so I can do it...
