Inspired by similar blogs in the past and contestants' reaction about the Kanpur Regional on various CP groups, making this blog...
Just to clarify, I have nothing to do with the contest. I am neither a contestant nor a setter/tester
, just a regular contribution beggar.
ICPC Gwalior-Pune 2020 Regional Round will be held on Codedrills tomorrow.
We recommend you to read the statements of all problems. Good luck & Have fun! May the best bugaboo solver win.
It can be shown that 83% of the participants who upvote this blog will observe an increase in their ICPC performance. The proof is quite trivial and left to the reader.
UPD1: Scoring distribution: 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 — 1 — 1

UPD 3: Rank list has been released provisionally subject to plag checks. Check it out HERE. Congrats to the winners!
UPD 4: Problem Discussion Session is on 23rd Aug, 6 PM IST. Join us here.
We hope you're doing well. Like last year, we're again looking to give back a little to the competitive programming community, in the form of mentorship. This mentorship is completely free. We're hoping to help aspiring competitive programmers do well at the ZCO, INOI and IOITC, and hopefully even represent India at the IOI!
We're setting up another Discord server, to mentor people trying out for the ZCO, INOI and IOITC. Last year, we had 16 people from our server qualify for IOITC. This time, there's a larger limit on the total number of people we can take, as we have many more mentors. However, we're trying to focus more on olympiad preparation this year. You're still welcome to apply if you think you'd benefit from Olympiad training but are ineligible for INOI.
We're also in the process of developing a resource similar to the USACO Guide, in order to help us organise our teaching better. Do note that we teach all the topics within the INOI syllabus, and also teach topics which can appear at IOITC and IOI.
Like last year, if you join the program, we'll help you by:
If you think you'd benefit from mentorship, feel free to apply at our form here. We'll get back to you within a couple of weeks with a server invite link. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me with a message, or leave a comment here. The form will close on the 9th of July, 2021 at 12pm IST.
If you'd like to become a mentor (preferably with ZCO/INOI/IOITC experience), please also reach out to me(or socho) — we'd be glad to have you on board!
The current set of mentors is:
Note: I would like to apologize for the name. It wasn't my choice. Ofcourse, DSU >> UFDS
TCO21 Algorithms Round 2A starts in 10 mins(and registrations end in 5 mins) but Topcoder applet doesn't seem to work. Neither for me nor for some people I asked.
This is what comes up.
Someone posted APIO results here on codeforces a few hours back. I don't know why it was deleted. But, it was the following — https://apio.innopolis.university/results/apio/2019/org-apio-2019-main.html.
I just cleaned the list (Considered only top 6 from each countries and removed the people scoring 0)
Here it is http://p.ip.fi/yuUl
I think the cutoffs will be-
Gold — 260
Silver — 203
Bronze — 173
