The 20 T-shirts mentioned in the post — Are they only for the Indian coders who are in college or everyone who is contesting?

    Only the Indian students currently enrolled in a college are eligible for prizes! However, everyone else can compete but won’t get any prizes :)

      Thanks for the reply. But, how will you verify if a contestant is a college student or not?

          Are t-shirts for college students among the top 30 members or top 30 college students?

Are those people who are graduating in 2019 eligible?

    So technically, we look at the college ids — if your college id is valid when the qualifiers are held(i.e today), you are eligible.

    In the past we have hosted the contest in July/Aug.The members passing out in that year were generally ineligible as most of them had already left their colleges by then.

What happens if someone qualifies for both TCO India regionals and TCC regionals? Do they receive double reimbursements?

    Unfortunately no! :) The next one in the queue for regionals get a ticket to the regionals!

      Oh that's sad! Will the events be held simultaneously or is it possible to participate in both? If not, it's up to the participant to choose the event?

        It's on the participant to choose! The events are held simultaneously but TCC finals will have 1/2 extra problem/problems.

        TCC Finalists are given special treatment at the event ;)

      Haha, many missed that. I made two successful challenges due to it. Even I submitted with ans = 2 initially and later resubmitted after changing it to 1.

Was that rated cuz, the rating hasn't been updated yet and I don't think it takes this long to get updated on topcoder?

    It may be possible that its unrated because the 2nd problem was copied.

        The match will be rated! The ratings will be updated within 2-3 hours from now. Unfortunately the writer and the tester didn't realize the problem already existed! We are extremely sorry for that :) Will take some extra measures to make sure it doesn't happen again!
