Since I have limited time for practice due to school , I am constantly uncertain about how I should practice. The ways I see are

1.Keep solving varied and general problems from codeforces , spoj , codechef etc. , following a roadmap.

2.Solve problems from specific topics and work my way up from simple to complex topics.

3.Or work somewhat how USACO training works and do interesting problems that increase in difficulty , while still belonging to relevant topics.

I should state that I am still in the early stages of practice and my current focus is on qualifying the national olympiad of my country (India) so I cannot move to advanced topics. So could anyone suggest what path I should take or suggest an alternative path to maximise my performance.

And a big thanks for helping out.

You might consider this plan. You don't need to focus on a specific IOI scope for now.
