By ahmed_aly, 4 years ago, In English,

Recently I added a new feature in A2 Online Judge, it's called Practice Ladders. A practice ladder is just a list of problems, and you can add some dependencies between the problem (for example, you must solve problem X before being able to see problem Y). Also you can add dependencies between the ladders and each other (for example, you must solve all problems in ladder X before being able to see any problem in ladder Y).

Also I created 7 Codeforces practice ladders which should you to increase your level, each ladder contains 100 Codeforces problems. Find which ladder is appropriate for you and enjoy!

Div. 2 A Problems: http://a2oj.com/Ladder.jsp?ID=4

Div. 2 B Problems: http://a2oj.com/Ladder.jsp?ID=5

Div. 2 C Problems: http://a2oj.com/Ladder.jsp?ID=6

Div. 2 D Problems: http://a2oj.com/Ladder.jsp?ID=7

Div. 2 E Problems: http://a2oj.com/Ladder.jsp?ID=8

Div. 1 D Problems: http://a2oj.com/Ladder.jsp?ID=9

Div. 1 E Problems: http://a2oj.com/Ladder.jsp?ID=10

Can I solved Div. 2 A Problems directly before the practice ladders id 1,2,3 ?

I tried to solve practice ladders id 4 , but I am not getting where I have to submit the solution?

    To solve problems from any ladder, you have to just go to the problem link, which will direct you to the actual problem link on Codeforces. You, then solve the problem as usual and after getting it accepted, go to your profile on A2oj and update Codeforces profile there, next problem will be automatically unlocked in the same ladder.

    Hope this helps.

      Thanks for the reply. I have tried the same but I am not able to update my A2oj profile. Actually the first problem was already submitted before so I submit it again but it does not count it solved.

Hello, the idea is awesome, thanks! Can you check the Div2 D's ladder second problem, please? Actually, it is a Div2 B problem, not D, and I got AC twice and it doesn't count it as solved.

PS: I have clicked the update button.

How about ladder for SPOJ? It has a very good collection of problems, but it is a mess. Could you please add that feature? It will be very helpful. :)

By the way, thank you very much for this wonderful feature.

Hi ahmed_aly, do these list contain random 100 problems or according to some order?

Like does the Div2 C ladder has 100 random Div2 C questions or are they in some order?

Thanks

      My username is pravad for both spoj and a2oj, and I didn't make a mistake in the case for sure.

        On the top of the site next to your username click on "My Account". Then scroll down and find a field named "Codeforces Handle" write your handle there. Don't forget to update your data :)
