Benefit of answering latest

Will I benefit if I start answering questions in a contest as soon as it begins or is it same whenever I do it?(In both the cases I take the same time to solve a particular question)For example:I am seeing that a user has 2 points with 2 or 3 unsuccessful submissions whereas I also have 2 points with no unsuccessful submissions
And also how is someone with 2 points ahead of someone with 3 points?

Hi @codersidhant :wave:

Thanks for reaching out. Please read the Rules in the contest pages - they ideally explain everything related to the contest.
You can also look at Ranking Mechanisms | CodeChef to get more clarity

Yeah thank you.I read this page but it doesnt mention what style ranklist is used for starters contest.

All Starters are IOI type ranklist contests
