    I guess with that sort of competition, its tricky to come up with 25 original problems year on year, some nice questions towards the end though usually

    yes that's true. the questions towards the end are sometimes quite interesting, but to an extent annoying to solve within the short space of time...

    Not really. there is a time constraint sure, but the top candidates do not struggle to get them all done within the time limit. The one question which I found wasn't too nice this year was the days of the week job. Purely because even with the right method an OBO was still quite easy
