According to the organizers, this time the level of preparedness of the teams was higher due to the fact that for the first time in the history of Jessup in Armenia, the national rounds were held in English language. Formerly, the teams were having difficulties in the international rounds due to the difficulties due to the fact that the national rounds were held in Armenian, which caused difficulties in the process of preparation to the international rounds.
