Questions and Comments

Please post any questions and comments you have regarding Helios in the comments section of this post.
We will post replies in the comments section.


  1. I will like to know the format of the prelim round ? Will it go on for 3 days or what exactly is it ?

  2. The prelims will be conducted on three separate days but a team is expected to participate on any one of the three days as per their convenience. This is done to ensure that no team misses out the prelims in case they are not available on a particular day.
    There will be three separate sets of questions of equal level of difficulty, one for each day.

    I hope I have addressed your query :)

  3. What type of questions will be there ?
    Will it be a time bound prelim round, i.e. 3 - 4 hrs. or will it be a deadline round, i.e. submit before this time or what would it be ?
    Nothing is clear and didn't get any mail about the registration confirmation ?
    Can the prelims played before or after as the dates specified are the 3 most crucial days of the Diwali festival ?

    Sorry for troubling you with all this questions.

  4. Questions will be general and no specific knowledge in any domain will be necessary. It can cover GK, puzzles, etc.
    The format and details will be informed in due time.
    At present we are not sending any registration confirmations. In case you have doubts, drop an email to
    We will internally discuss the issue of the dates being on Diwali but the prelims will hardly be of 60 to 90 minutes duration as per present plans and should not be much of an issue.

    Your questions are welcome, no trouble at all.

  5. The dates of the prelims have been shifted to 23rd, 24th and 25th October.
