Same with my school. Some of the scores look a bit sketch. (Either that, or we just did bad lol) Also, gotta feel bad for Kraemer man. 2 points away from going to nats

lol towards the start we thought it was going to be close. Not at all lol.

Also, yesterday went really bad for us lol. Dropped from 10th place to 24th place, my mission broke down completely, and I honestly don't know what happened with mousetrap vehicle.

The thing is, if you look at it, might not even be two points, just one point (since it would become a tie). The tiebreaker would be won by Kraemer based on the number of second place medals (since both Jeffrey Trail and Kraemer had the same number of first place medals).

Do they do a regrading, but like with different people grading the tests? It's very unlikely that none of the supervisors didn't mess up at all, and even one extra question right on one study event could make the difference.

I believe that NSO reccomends at least two different pairs of eyes to look at each paper. Also. They don't finalize the scores until like the Monday after (I think...).
