The contest is a 2.5 day long (60 Hrs) contest. The contest will be open to everyone. We’d be offering you 8 partially graded problems with varying difficulties and a challenge problem.

The problems were invented and prepared by me, Shahraaz Hussain, Shrey Kaushik, Aneesh D Hiregange, Divyam Arora, Pushkar Patel, Siddharth, John Zakkam and Mayuresh Patle and tested by Darshan Lokhande, Smit Mandavia, Raksha Jain, Taranpreet Singh, Jaymeet Mehta, Mann Mehta, Sumanth Nidamanuri, Himanshu, Souvik Mondal, Manas Khosla, Himani Popli and Rahul Sawantdesai

Huge thanks to entire CodeChef Team for their invaluable help and their great platform.

Hoping you’d a great time solving the problems while in quarantine.

I don’t think so! :slightly_smiling_face:

Is it to select new codechef campus representatives? or just a contest

Yup, Long Challenge Format

No, it’s unrated

It is a CodeChef Campus Chapter initiative, wherein Campus Chapters from several institutes all over the country came together and decided to serve you some appetizing problems amidst all this chaos of CoronaVirus


So shall we expect more of this kind even after corona chaos gets over ?


Yes surely, the contest is solely an initiative of Campus chapters with equal support from codechef and has no correlation with Corona. We will make sure you are served delicious problems even after Corona situation is taken care of.
