Selection Process :
The teams are selected on the basis of the total marks scored in Prelims. The Top 50 teams from each squad are called to IIT Guwahati for the Mains Round.
Other than the top 100 participants which are selected for mains in each squad (& given Gold Certificates); the next 400 participants in both the squads are awarded with Silver Certificates from Techniche, IIT Guwahati.
Also there are various other prizes to be won which will be disclosed later. Everyone participating in Technothlon 2016 will receive e-Certificate of participation.
The championship is held in two stages:
Prelims is in general an objective written exam. It involves no syllabus or general knowledge and relies solely on the student’s logical and analytical thinking abilities. The exam is generally of 2 and ½ hour length. The question paper will have various sections like maths, puzzles, code crunchers etc. Each section has its own marking scheme.
The two team members are given a common Question paper and answer sheet and they can discuss it amongst themselves and attempt the paper together.
These questions are designed in a way to properly check the intellect and problem solving abilities of the participants. This also involves development of proper teamwork amongst the participants thus leading to wholesome development of students.
Mains is an event based competition. It is conducted during “Techniche”, the Techno-Management Festival of IIT Guwahati, held during the first week of September. The selected teams of the same squad compete against each other in various events.
Each team will have to face 3 events from which top 5 teams from each squad will be selected for the Final Showdown. The events, like prelims, do not require any prerequisite knowledge and students will be taught any extra knowledge they require.
The events vary every year and in the past there have been events like Robotics, Aircrash Investigation, Water Rocket and many more!
In addition to these, students can attend the workshops and fun events to spend the night. Other than events, the students can witness the competitions of Techniche, attend the Lecture Series of famous personalities, watch Nite performances.
