ZCO 2015 Cutoffs

Post your ZCO 2015 result here! Hopefully we can estimate the cutoff.

1 full problem 100/200 is cutoff
Easier to get to INOI through zio

I am 32767% sure that cutoff will be 100 if not 40 (~120 people , many on ducks (I was on afternoon session))(~50 get selected)). Clearly cutoff will be very low

I had afternoon session have 100. Partial marking must always be there .

i got the second question on morning session. and TLE on first :frowning: so hope its 100/200

Was the test data for the morning session available offline?

I asked Madhvan sir , he said many students minimum upto 100 will be selected through ZCO because less were selected through zio . max cut off will be 100. cut off may go below this also.

I qualified with 100!

Did anyone else get a mail saying they had qualified?

The cutoff is probably 100/200.

How much is everyone getting?

I got 200/200. Morning session was much easier than afternoon session.

What was the solution for BREAKUP?

@potatio Dynamic Programming. My approach was O(n^2). I used Longest Common Substring to find out which substrings were pandromic, then I calculated the maximum length of palindromic substring at any point and then using dp found out the best selection of splits.

Yes, they uploaded it because they were having server problems.

Iā€™m curious. What form was it available in? Could you see the actual inputs, or was it something else?

The results are out?

I received a mail saying I had qualified, and that they were waiting for all certificates to be received before formally declaring them.

Yes, I did.
