What is a cutoff?

A cutoff is a time that you must solve the puzzle in at least once during your first two solves in order to do the last three solves of the average. If the format of the event only has 3 attempts, you must solve the puzzle in the first attempt under the cutoff in order to do the last two solves of the mean.

What is a time limit?

A time limit is a time that you must solve the puzzle in during each attempt. If you do not solve the cube within the time limit, you will be stopped by the judge and recieve a DNF for that solve.
