NSC 2012 Rules

PACE has completed its revision to the rules for the 2011-2012 National Scholastic Championship.  The rules can be found here: PACE NSC 2012 Rules.

The primary, but not exhaustive, list of changes from last year’s rules are as follows:

  1. Clarification of bonus replacement policy.  Note that PACE will be issuing follow-up material to better illustrate how bonuses will be replaced in the event of protests, moderator error, or other issues.
  2. Revision of the tiebreaking and final placement clauses.
  3. Instructions for filing a protest made more explicit.
  4. Clarification on player eligibility.
  5. Clarification on grounds for protesting tossup questions.

If you have any questions about the rules, please contact Matt Weiner, the tournament director of the 2012 NSC.
