Every case is different. Each country has it’s own way of doing things, and on top of that each school might also do things their way… that is why at the end of the day we can only look at official documentation to verify the student status of participants, even if this system isn’t always perfect.
That being said, all members of your team must be students, if not today, at leas the day the competition stated, which is November 23rd 2020, and you need to be able to proof that with some sort of documentation. We can use:
- student ID’s
- enrolment papers (can also be screenshots
- or letters from your school.
As long as you can provide such a document with an expiration date after November 23rd 2020, or with something that reads as “seconds semester 2020”, “academic year 2020”, or something similar, then yes, you will be eligible to participate in the competition.
If on the other hand your documentation has an expiration date before November 23rd 2020, or read something like “first semester 2020”, then I’m afraid that person would not be eligible to participate in the competition.
Hope this helps. If you can, send us the documentation you have in hand before registering so that we can verify it before you complete the registration, we would be happy to do that, you can e-mail it to us at email@example.com.
