Why my ratings degrading even solved more problems than last contest

I’m beginner in CP . I solved more problems than last contest but ratings degrading .
Can someone tell about the rating system working and how to improve .

Well, rating increase or decrease doesn’t solely depend on no. of problems you solved, it’s relative to other performance, and also on your current rating.
As a beginner I recommend you to focus more on concept for now rating will follow up eventually.

Just practice more and more, before October 2020 i didn’t even knew what is CP. I practiced for 6 months and now I am 3 star.

PS: i would like to quote a dialogue from 3 idiots. “Success ke peeche mat bhaag, knowledge ke peeche bhaag success to jhak maarke peeche aayegi”
Just replace success with rating. Good luck
