We have admitted 13 contestants into the 2nd and final round of the IBS World Tour 2023 instead of 10 as announced previously.
The reason for this is that there were multiple students who achieved the exact same results during the first round of the competition. We wanted to make the competition as fair and transparent as possible, and we also wanted to give as many students as possible the chance to win the grand prize! Therefore, we have admitted the additional 3 students into the second round.
See last year's event here.
We reserve the right to change!
