Hmmm... Since when is the Putnam exam a '''two-day''' exam? I administered it several times and every time it was a one-day event (as far as I remember, it is held on some Saturday in the beginning of December). Also, if I don't mistake, the sittings were 3 hours long each (A part and B part)  Has anything changed since the last year? --[[User:Fedja|Fedja]] 18:01, 21 June 2006 (EDT)

Then it may be just their mistake, not a recent change in rules. Anyway, what I said agrees with the information on [http://math.scu.edu/putnam/ this site] (see "schedule"), so I'll change this part of the article --[[User:Fedja|Fedja]] 20:49, 21 June 2006 (EDT)

The results are likely to get very long.  It may be a good idea to create a [[Putnam historical results]] page to keep this one from getting cluttered (I did this for [[ARML]] and [[MathCounts]] and it seems to work well).--[[User:MCrawford|MCrawford]] 00:36, 22 June 2006 (EDT)
