In theory, that's true. In practice, it doesn't always work out. The entire set-up of DP is the same idea, but tests rarely reflect that. The reasoning is, of course, supervisors who are ill-equipped, procrastinate, apathetic, or anything like that.Heck, the entire setup of Hydrogeology as an event is completely centered around critical thinking and application of knowledge (granted, this is a deviation into the land of Division C in a discussion that so far only pertains to Division B, but still).
I was also in Simple Machines, and it was basically the same (except we did make two dumb mistakes we got 6th)As the champion of Simple Machines in 2014 and 2015x, I can definitely say that the test was very easy. My partner and I walked in expexting an extremely hard test but walked out hoping we didn't make a dumb mistake that would take us out of the running as the test was so easy. Now last year, first through around 6 or 7 place I believe were within 1 point of each other. I also plced 4th in Green Generation and the test supervisor was out state supervisor (NC). I felt that test was one of the best formulated tests I had ever taken. The test solely depends on the supervisor.
