How are contest scores calculated?

Does the number of wrong submissions play a role, or is it just based on how many you got wrong or right?

Scores are just based on correct submissions.

For short contest wrong submission decreases your rank (due to time penality) but for long contest number of wrong submissions does not matter, scores depend only on the right submissions.

Happy Coding!!!
