#10

I am a beginner in competitive world,And i have been feeling long challenge division styles are harder than old style ( same for all participants ) becoz i used to solve 3-4 problems in old long challenge style but now i always be able to solve only first problem…
I have noticed the differences between the submissions of Q-1 and Q-2…

is this long challenge new division style good for beginners ?

Any suggestion ?


#11

My feedback -

Questions were nice with unexpected difficulty level wrt May18. This difficulty should continue in future also. One visible difference seen was with no of submissions. There should be 2 more questions in between NAICHEF and BINSHFFL. I’m not asking for easy questions/spoonfeed in future but we can increase no of questions in long challenge. And 2 questions which should be inbetween can be marked as NON SCORABLE PROBLEMS FOR PRACTICE for both divisions. so that we can have both version of contest July18 = (May18+June18).
