This is my progression thread, mostly just for 3x3 because that is what I am trying to improve in now.

Averaging around 20 seconds these days, finishing up learning pll, getting more comfortable with F2L, that sort of thing.

A friend challenged me to be sub 15 before school starts (in like 2 weeks) and even though I don't think it's going to happen, I'm still going to try.

ok ty

So what's considered a good standard deviation?
Depends on your level. Fast cubers usually have a smaller standard deviation, while slower cubers tend to be more inconsistent, leading towards a bigger standard deviation. The smaller the deviation is, the more consistent you are. Inconsistency isn't necessarily a bad thing though
