  1. Languages supported for the contest are: C++, Java, Python.
  2. Each submission will be tested based on our critical test data. 
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
