I'm a student from China, and I've been competing in informatics for three years. But now I've hit some bottlenecks... Many of the questions I have done I forget the solution, even after doing a lot of a certain type of questions during the competition I also seemed to panic, I finished over a hundred or thousand problems, participated in a lot of Rounds, but the change of rating is not obvious... How do you train comprehensively while maintaining efficiency?

From what i've seen on your profile, you have taken part in 4 contests on codeforces and solved ~20 problems here. What other sites do you use?

Also, in your last contest you did very, very well. You could easily hit grandmaster or international grandmaster like that.

    Oh sorry... I just use this account to participate in Div.2 contests. I've finished almost 600 CF problems on another account. :(

I think you should calm down, you are too stress. I have been like you before, you should spend more time taking care of yourself (take a walk, play with your pet, chat with girlfriend, ...). The change of rating is not important, you should focus about your feeling too. If you make a big pressure that must finish the contest at the best result, you cant do it well. Just relax (listen to music, take a little break, be free for few minutes before continue doing contest) and then focus on the problems. I know the knowledge and time is important to solve the problem, but making pressure just make it worse, and if you have good emotion you will think better. Trust me, look how my rating change in the recent contest when I do like so <3

Good luck and high rating

I'm a student from China

I thought that the algorithm to become Grandmaster was well-known in China too. I am not sure what the Chinese call that algorithm though ...

    There are many high level "players" in China, but I mainly don't know, or haven't been exposed to how to train systematically...
