I am technically the top student from my college which is Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute Of Technology

But a clever student of LNMIIT profile=https://www.codechef.com/users/indian_army1
Changed his college in codechef setting to my college and after the contest changed it back so he becomes the top scorer from my college so he gets 100% scholarship I on the other hand have gotten only 75% and I am the top scorer as I solved 2 question being in div 1 I didn’t have time to attempt the whole challenge and just gave it for the scholarship purpose on the last day

I request CodeChef admins to please look into this matter and give each person the correct scholarship they deserve or cancel his scholarship as he cheated changed his university just to get 100% scholarship this can also be considered as a bug in this scholarship giving system I just submitted enough questions so I become the top scorer from my college this guy must have changed his college at the last moment to a random college such that he gets 100% scholarship
you can go to his profile and see that he indeed is from LNMIIT and not from GTBIT which is my college hope you guys look into this matter.
