Contest Details

Firstly, let us tell you that each contest will consist of 1 DSA Based Problem with varying difficulty – so make sure your skills are up to the mark. Other than that, there is a 5% penalty for each wrong submission. For example, if a problem is of 100 marks and a participant makes a wrong submission, his marks are reduced to 95. After the next wrong submission of the same problem, his marks are further reduced to 90.25 and so on. Therefore, it is suggested to use ‘Compile & Test’ against sample test cases before each submission.
