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

So, I started competitive programming 3 years ago, and I haven't been able to do anything in it.

To summarize, I have given 3 attempts for the IOI team and failed all of them. Last 2 years, I was 5th when 4 people are selected for the team.

Last to last year — Missed the camp by 1 shitty subtask.

Last year — Missed by team by 1 fucking subtask again coming 5th. Also the competition was very unfair cuz the problems were shitty and not diverse. Good thing, no one got a medal.

This year — Missed by team again by 1 small fucking subtask coming 5th. I was in the top 4 after the contest but I had missed an edge case in one of my solutions so it got hacked after the contest. Altho, the contest wasn't unfair this year so can't blame anyone except for myself. I even listened to twice for hours ffs yet couldn't qualify.

The worse part is most people take 1 or 2 years max to qualify for the Indian team and are mostly blues and all.

I am not good in anything anything apart from competitive programming and this was probably my last attempt. My life is ruined and I can't do anything.

Hello, I am participating in Facebook Hackercup Cup this year. I solved the 3rd problem first then tried to submit it. I submitted my code and output when around 2 mins were left. It kept loading but didn't submit until it showed time expired. I thought it might be a wifi issue or something so a few hours later I solved the 2nd problem and this time I had seen whether wifi is good and set up output file and all. I submitted when 5 mins were left. It kept loading for 1 min but didn't submit so I refreshed it and tried submitting it again. It said something like you are not able to submit. Now all my eggs are on the 1st problem. I got the solution and have coded it as well but I'm afrai something like could happen. Please suggest something.

PS — I really hate this input method. I couldn't qualify round 1 of GCJ last year because of this as well(input was large, didn't know file handling and could not google fast enough :p)

1. It is slower
2. It takes more memory
3. It is longer to code
4. It is harder to understand
