3 star codechef

Please anyone can help me how can I become 3 star coder. I am new in programming.

Upsolve the problems that you can’t solve during the contest.
Read Editorials, blogs and learn new topics.
And the most important thing, don’t worry much about ratings.

Out of my curiosity, how much time do you generally take to upsolve a problem? I know it depends upon the problem, but what about when you have to learn a completely new topic to upsolve that next problem that you could not solve during the contest?

As for me, I am yet to upsolve BITSWAPS and it has already been nearly two days since Long challenge ended. I learned that it can be solved using DSU or any graph traversal algo + connected components concept. Currently, I know none of them. :no_mouth:

I generally don’t have much time to upsolve but I try to look into the editorial and someone’s approach for the particular problem. Then when I get free time I try to upsolve it.
