You must have obtained an official result in a WCA competition below the qualification result before May 29, 2019 in order to be eligible to register for the event. If you register for an event and your official result does not qualify by that date, you will be removed from the event.

While all events have a qualification requirement, some events also have a cutoff time, which applies for round 1 only. Competitors who get a time under the cutoff within the first two attempts of the combined round can complete the remaining three attempts.

If the time limit is exceeded in one attempt, the attempt is stopped and disqualified (DNF). In rounds with a cumulative limit, the time of every attempt (including DNF attempts) counts towards the cumulative time limit. The time limits apply to all rounds of the respective event.

3x3x3 Multi-Blind and 3x3x3 Fewest Moves each have a competitor cap. The specified number of competitors with the best ranking (by single for 3x3x3 Multi-Blind and by mean for 3x3x3 Fewest Moves) on May 29, 2019 will qualify for these events.

Column Num shows the competitor limit for the round.
