Please the greatest minds on Codeforces . I would like your help in finding out why am i not Specialist yet. I am solving consistently 1200- 1300 (and I did not even reached pupil yet && its greatly disappointing ) questions on Codeforces but in the real contest I am not able to solve 1200 rated questions.

Any advice that you would like to give, suggestions , practice methods, anything would help. Its greatly demotivating.

I do know dfs , bfs , Dp but don't have that confidence to solve questions sometimes I cant even solve the 1st question on contest.

Your Greatly, Rose_Barrett_M95.

      I check your profile and it seem like you often rage quit during the real contest. Don't do it, even if the problems may be harder than your current level

I think to become a Specialist you don't really need dp and dfs-bfs, if you are able to solve A and B problems quickly in every contest you will soon reach there. You have hardly given 6-7 contests so I will recommend you to go for more contests and after some time you will too become cyan :)

You registered 4 weeks ago. It sometimes takes time. Just keep solving and you'll get there. Maybe do some virtual participations to help you get deal with the contest feel.

I am on the way to Specialist so I know exactly what should you do (for Pupil): solve A and B in div 2 really fast (5 mins for A, 7-8 mins for B) and AC in first submission.

Additionally, you can do C in 30 mins in to get to top 1500th in order to reach Specialist.

Hope this helps!
