  • If the contestants accumulate an equal number of points in the same field, the prize will be awarded to the participant who has the correct answer to more questions in the “difficult” category. If the participants in the tenth and eleventh places in the first round accumulate an equal number of points, both of them will be admitted in the second round.
  • The number of test questions has been reduced, and instead of 90, 60 questions will be used in each direction.

Within the framework of Agro-Olympics 2022, from each category (farmer, student, specialist and pupil), according to the fields, three winners (I place, II place, III place) will be revealed, who will be awarded certificates and prizes.
