To commit to memory as many Binary digits (101101
etc) as possible and recall them perfectly. 
Time to Memorise 
30 minutes 
Time to Recall 
45 minutes 
Question Paper 

Computer generated numbers are presented in rows of 30 digits with 25 rows
per page (see Annex C for a sample sheet).

4500 digits (6 sheet) are presented although more are available from the
adjudicator but this must be requested one month in advance of the competition.

Answer Paper 

Contestants must write their recalled numbers in rows of 30 digits.

Contestants may use the answer sheets provided (an example is provided
with these rules) or their own (as long as it has been cleared by the adjudicator
before recall commences).

It must be clear how the rows presented on the answer paper relate to the
rows on the question paper (missing rows must be clearly indicated).

Scoring 

30 points are awarded for every complete row that is correctly recalled
in order.

For every complete row of 30 that has a single mistake in it (this includes
a missing digit), 15 points are awarded.

For every complete row of 30 that has two or more mistakes (including missing
digits) 0 points are awarded for that row.
FOR THE LAST ROW ONLY

If the last row is incomplete (eg only the first 19 numbers have been written
down) but all of the digits are correct, then the points awarded will equal
the number of digits recalled (19 in this example).

If the last row is incomplete and there is a single mistake (this includes
a missing digit) then the points awarded will equal half the number of
digits recalled. (For an odd number of digits the fraction is rounded up
eg 19 the score would be 19/2 rounded up equals 10)

The winner of the event is the contestant with the highest score.
