A Note about Set Difficulty

The classifications for the projected difficulty of sets being used at tournaments are as follows. 


Regular minus sets are easier than regular difficulty, and are perfect for newer teams to be introduced to the game and gain experience. Novice tournaments run on regular minus sets but have eligibility barriers (e.g. only players playing their first 1-2 years of quiz bowl can play). Regular minus sets include NAQT's A-set series. 

Regular difficulty sets are the normal difficulty of high school sets- about as difficult as NAQT's Introductory Series (IS) sets. 

Regular plus sets are harder than regular difficulty, and are good for more experienced teams to practice. 

Nationals is the highest level of high school quiz bowl, and resembles the difficulty of NAQT's High School National Championships set (HSNCT) or PACE's National Scholastic Championships set (NSC).
