Languages supported for the contest are: C++, Java, Python.
Each submission will be tested based on our critical test data.
There is 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.
Each question has hints that you may use when you're stuck on a problem. Marks are deducted on hints usage.
Please refrain from discussing strategy during the contest. All submissions are run through a plagiarism detector. Any case of code plagiarism will reduce the score of the concerned participants to 0.
Make sure other participants don't have access to your code. In case you are using any other online coding environment, you are responsible for the privacy of your code.
It is advised to attempt the Sample Geeks Challenge to get familiar with the GeeksforGeeks coding environment.
About the Contest
COVID-19 has struck the citizens of India harder than ever and every day on social media or in real life we see people stricken with poverty and hunger due to it. To make their lives a bit easier in these tough times, we present to you ‘ Code to Contribute’!
This is a 90 min coding challenge where for each participation, we will be sponsoring 1 meal to a family for a day. If you perform extremely well and make it to the top 50, we will be sponsoring meals to a family for a week.
Imagine how much we can help somebody if Geeks all around the world came together to help. Participation for this contest is absolutely FREE. So make sure to participate and not just register. It’s time to make good use of those skills you have been working so hard for!
Good deeds always go a long way, so don’t forget to share this with your friends and family and on social media as well because the more people who participate, the more families we can help.
Not just this, a personalized certificate will be handed out to each participant for their good deeds.
