Also the state Road Scholar test was great. The length (44 questions) was ideal, and there were no "gimme" questions, nor were there any sort of errors on the test (aside from the misnumbering of one question, but that's a minor detail). The Disease Detectives test, similarly, was surprisingly long (16 pages), but not long enough that it was impossible to finish. The event covered pretty much everything it should cover, and it was in a very nice format. Also, they made it clear which questions were Division C only by highlighting them, a large improvement from last year. Congratulations to the event supervisors and test writers of these events!

Unfortunately, Boomilever was only an exception.
The Circuit Lab event ran smoothly but there were some errors with the readings we got as some of our devices were not the same. However, the supervisors were very understanding and were knowledgable about the problems with running the event. Although I do not think anything was exempt from the test, it was definitely quite a challenge albeit fun. 7/10 --
The Herpetology event was fun and ran smoothly. At regionals, the format that everyone had to move around in was chaotic and crowded. At states, everything was consistent and there was enough room for everyone to move to the next station. The event supervisor was the same as last year (I believe) and expressed great joy in presenting the live specimen to us (Medusa rules!). It was obvious that he cared about the event he was supervising, which made it much better to compete in. There was a challenge, but it was nothing my partner and I could not overcome. 10/10 --
The NC state competition was definitely a step up from last year and as far as I knew, the events were run extraordinarily well. Hats off to the amazing volunteers who made this a great end to my Science Olympiad journey.
