Scripps National Spelling Bee contestant Arvind Mahankali, 13, of Bayside Hills, N.Y., left, departs with his younger brother Srinath, 9, after completing the Preliminaries Test phase of the Bee in Oxon Hill, Md., Tuesday, May 28, 2013. Arvind finished 3rd in the Bee last year. Spellers arrived Tuesday morning to take a 45-minute computer test that probes their knowledge of both spelling and vocabulary. The results will be combined with Wednesday's on-stage round to determine which spellers will advance to the semifinals Thursday. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen) less
