  3. The total time is the sum of the time consumed for each problem solved.

We have tried our best to create an interesting problemset, and we hope that everyone finds something interesting in the tasks.

We hope you’ll have an amazing time! Happy Coding!! :slight_smile:


I seemed very much excited for the contest untill after viewing the contest date, timing.
It clashes with Codeforces Global Round 5 :slightly_frowning_face: . Also, it seems quite unlikely that the timings and date would be changed now.


Contest date has been updated now to avoid the clash with codeforces global contest. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.


Reminder : Contest begins in approximately 6 hrs.
