Hi everyone, I'm a final year student pursuing Computer Science. I've a good basis in competitive programming, though I've not been very consistent enough to strengthen them till now. As a result I've missed out on several opportunities. I really do love CP, so, I'm creating this blog to help me stay consistent. I'm planning on doing atleast one Virtual contest per day and upsolving it,I will be posting my improvements in this post. I've been inspired to take this up by Eddagdeg's blog. Any suggestions/feedback is highly welcomed :)
1st VC: round82 rank:6514 Analysis: Had solved A in contest, had to upsolve B,C due to bugs in implementation, had an idea about D but wasn't clear: referred edit and upsolving. UPD: Completed upsolving upto D
2nd VC: Hello2020 rank:5861 I felt this contest was a little harder. Analysis: Solved A, very close with B (upsolved), upsolved C after referring editorial. Order of attempt: A,C,B. UPD: Completed upsolving upto D, will revisit D (implem got WA)
6th VC: round609 rank:5325 Analysis: Solved A, have to upsolve B. Facing difficulty in breaking past correctly solving anything other than A during contest. Decided to upsolve upto D/E in all prev VCs
8th VC(actual contest) : round622 rank:4694 Analysis: Solved A, tried to solve C1.
Feel that I'm improving :) To be continued only after upsolving upto D/E in the above 8 VCs.
UPD: Decided to upsolve alteast one of the prev contests (upto D) and continue doing atleast one VC per day.
Attended Carte Blanche at MIT: got exposure and solved a wide range of problems ^_^
Upsolved all contests upto C (except for 2). Hadn't understood few problems, marked to revisit them. Slightly slacked off inbetween :((
13th VC (actual contest): round:edu83 rank:7906 :( Analysis: had solved B in contest, logic gap in A. Upsolved upto C
Planning to side-by-side solve many B,C and also do VC+upsolve upto D from now on
