Our contests are open to all the programmers across the globe. However, all the participants are expected to abide to
CodeChef's code of conduct
Rules and Regulations:
- The scoreboard will be frozen 1 hour before the contest ends.
- You can use the comments section to clarify anything related to the contest.
- Teams will be ranked according to number of problems solved. Ties will be broken according to ACM ICPC Rules, but with a penalty of 10 minutes for each unsuccessful submission.
- That is, in case of a tie, the rankings will be determined by 'Total Penalty', which is the sum of the total time elapsed when you submitted the correct submission plus a penalty of 10 minutes for every rejected submission (Wrong answer, Time limit exceeded, Runtime Error) for a problem you solved. The lower your Total Penalty, the better.
- The total time is the time taken to solve a problem since the start of the contest.
- Getting Compilation Error does not contribute towards the 10 minutes penalty.
- The time elapsed or penalty is not considered for any unsolved problem.
- All languages supported on CodeChef are allowed.
- As opposed to the default value of 5, PYTH and PYTH 3.6 have a time multiplier factor of 3 in this contest. Other languages have their default values. In particular, Java has a multiplier of 2.
- The decision of the organizers in declaring the results will be final. No queries in this regard will be entertained.
- Any participant found to be indulging in any form of malpractice will be immediately disqualified.
Note: You can now "Code, Compile, and Run" your codes on our newly launched Online IDE.
