The March Challenge 2018 witnessed two parallel contests for the two rating divisions for the first time ever in Codechef. However, there are a few issues regarding it which I want to discuss.
Codechef clearly states that the problems in the other division can be practiced and are “NOT part of the contest”.
I had planned to skip this March Challenge as our college fest was going on. However, I tried those div 2 problems in practice and boom, my name appeared on the ranklist with score ‘0’! Now this really needs to be fixed… @admin
The second and the last issue is undoubtedly a petty issue. The div 2 problems once solved, shows a yellow tick even if it is fully solved. Even the profile shows the problems in the partially solved section. I don’t know the reason behind this.
However, overall, I am satisfied with this division system and it does motivate all the coders to strive hard for that green tick.
