Neilish's blog

I am currently in the 10th grade. I would like to get started in competitive programming. This are the things I know now:

Mathematics — Currently in pre-calculus Well Mathematics in my country is pretty unstructured. You would be studying bits of everything, and not one after the other. So I self studied up to Algebra II (Algebra I, geometry) so that I can cover it in more depth than in my school, though in school I'm learning through trigonometry stuff, algebra I & II stuff and geometry in varying orders.

Programming:

1.Knows the basics of C, Python, C++(main currently learning)

CS50X completed

HTML,CSS ,JS and sqlite3 with python

What I want to learn for competitive programming(I am unsure):

Discrete Mathematics Algorithms Data Structures 4.Dynamic Programming

and I am hoping you'll help me to structure the remaining necessities and knowledge required. I found some blogs at many places but they were incomplete i.e. they are not well enough for beginners to you know get started on.

-I am currently in the 10th grade and due to the lockdown and closing of schools I was able to spend 10 hours a day learning and practicing for competitive programming. But here they are going to open schools soon and it will be conducted for 8 hours a day. I would still want to continue my programming on the same level. How to?

My schedule this month:

-Wake up(5-6) — 6) — 9:00 CP+breakfast

-9:00-12:15 school + cp in breaks (online class due to you know)

-12:15 — 3:00 school work and study

-3:30 — 7:30 cp

-7:30 — 8:30 school other stuff and test prep

-9:00 — 11:00 cp

-How can i make it better?

I am starting(literal first step (C++)) today towards IOI.I have a year before regional and national selections begin and a year and a half for IOI 2022.Even if I fail I am gonna try IOI 2023 with a break year which will provide with a lot of time.

For IOI 2022, I am gonna try to spend 60-75 hours a week from now(study a little for school the frickin boards).How should I plan my days ahead? I am thinking of spending around a month and a half for exams(prep + exams) and the rest for IOI.Is this a good strategy or will IOI remain a dream?
