The 2012 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, Division I is played in two groups of six teams each. In each group the first place team is promoted to the next level, while the last place team is relegated to play in a lower level. This year, for the first time, the winner of Group B is promoted to Group A and the winner of Group A is promoted to the top division.[1][2] Previously the winners of both were promoted to the top division. Group A was played in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, between December 11 and December 17, 2011. Group B was played in Tychy, Poland, between December 12 and December 18, 2011.[3][4]
