What do you prefer: to know your and everyone's else results right after you finish the exam (IOI), or to know your scores few days after the exam and only know partially the ones of the other contestants (IMO)?

To know everyone's results right after exam.

The current IOI system is much better. However, in IMO it wouldn't be possible, because the evaluation is not automatic.

    IMO evaluation can not be automatic because the solution has to be judged by people, not computers :D

    The thing with live scores (IOI) is that there is no suspense in the closing ceremony because you know exactly the rankings; that gets rid of some emotion.

    Maybe it would be a good idea to only know your own score.

    It really depends on each person :P

      No suspense has good points, too: you can enjoy the olympiad more, since you don't have to be nervous about your results. I think the good points outweigh the bad ones.

      And knowing just your own score just means the ranklists would be slightly incomplete and unofficial.
