Note: If you have not removed your old classes from Sumdog, or if you have classes with similar names, be sure and check you have entered the correct class into the contest. Sometimes we find that problems around which class has been entered can cause confusion when trying to participate in a contest. For example, if your current class is 4B, ensure that 4B 2020 is entered into the contest, and not 4B from a previous year.

If you aren’t sure which class is the correct class to enter, you can always enter both into the contest. There are no penalties for how many classes you enter, so it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
