Why did my rating decrease if i wasnt even on the ranklist?

Isnt it the rule that if i dont get a question correct i wont be placed on the leaderboard?

It’s because you submitted 2 incorrect solutions for SWAPPALI , and once you submit solution to a scorable problem of your division then you are counted as a participant for that contest

Well unfortunately, 0 score means coming last.


does this happen for long challenges also?

Yes, it does.

My bad. I started late and didn’t bothered trying other questions coz of this… :disappointed:

Not really

Bro don’t think about rating if you are a beginner like many of us… from my experience I can tell you that the more you think about rating the more difficult it gets to actually get it … so just chill and try every contest for the sake of learning
