- You will receive one point for correctly solving a problem (passing all test cases - no partial credit), regardless of the level of difficulty of that problem.
- Teams are ranked according to the number of problems solved. Ties will be broken by the total time for each team in ascending order of time.
- Compilation error will not count towards the penalty.
- Total time is the sum of the time consumed for each problem solved. The time consumed for a solved problem is the time elapsed from the beginning of the contest to the submittal of the first accepted run plus 20 penalty minutes for every previously rejected run for that problem. There is no time consumed for a problem that is not solved.
- Each program will be tested based on our critical test data. A program will be considered as correct if its output matches with our output against our critical test data.
- Selection of Teams may or may not reflect the Ranking of the Teams. For selection of the team procedure read below.
- There are 90 seats available for the on-site contest.
- All teams will be divided into groups where each group consists of all teams of the same Institute or School.
- All teams of the same group will be ranked with respect to their performances.
- To get a seat by a group for the on-site contest, a team of that group has to submit at least one correct program. An attempt will be made to provide a seat for the on-site contest to the best ranked team of that group.
- In case it is found that the number of selected teams in this process is less than the available seats, best ranked teams among the non-selected teams will be considered to fill the remaining seats.
- In case it is found that the number of selected teams is more than the available seats, worst ranked teams among the selected teams will not be given the seats for the on-site contest.
