Cut Off: You must achieve a single time under this time in one of your first two solves to complete the average of 5. If the format is mean of 3, then the cutoff applies after 1 solve. These generally only apply during the first round of an event.
Time Limit: If you take longer than this on a single solve you will be stopped, and given a DNF result for that attempt. These apply for every round of an event.
Total Time: All solves for the round must be completed within this time. For example if the total time is 10 minutes and you take 4 minutes for the first attempt, you will have 6 minutes left for your remaining attempts. This is generally only used for blindfolded events.
