We arrived and I took some photos before Irfan joined his school contingent for registration. There were 150 attendees from his school.

After registration, the teacher in charge briefed his contingent. It looks like there were representatives from every Form.

This appeared to be the qualifying round. There was only a preliminary written test for the attendees. If Irfan makes it past the preliminaries, the next event would be the State Challenge which according to the website would be held at Dewan Kapitol on the 8th and 9th of August.
