Ward-Melville was barred from competing at their state tournament a while back becuase of a phone/paperwork mixup and in my opinion some unreasonable rulings by people in charge. If you want to know more just look around the state discussion forms for explanation.

If you want to know more about the situation, I'm sure there are plenty of Ward and Gelinas people willing to let you know.

Well this got a bit off track...so the entomology test was fairly difficult then, if a medalist missed 3? I seriously doubt any medalists missed more than 2 on geomaps.

The entomology test wasn't hard. It was quite simple for a nationals test; our state test was harder. I'm guessing that the entomology raw scores percentage correct must have been fairly high. Medalists probably missed only <5 for sure.
GeoLogic Mapping wasn't terribly difficult, but it wasn't terribly easy either. My partner and I were actually unsure about the last problem, so I think we missed a few, unless we guessed correctly...Still, raw score percentages are definitely very high.

Interesting. To be honest, I feel like we missed a few too, but even some 20th place finishers said that that they didn't miss a single question, so that made me wonder. That last question definitely had confusing wording (I'd never seen "map projection" used in that context before). And then my partner and I both derped and treated it like a contact instead of a bed... At least we had plenty of time :P
