Hello Good People;

I am doing CP for around 2 years. I don't see that much improvement in my performance. I solved already 1000+ cf problems and in total 2000 problems. But it rare that I solved div2 C number problem and still my ratings ups and downs in between 900-1300. I gave a lot of time but in the end I become demotivated by seeing my performance.

What should be done by me? Give me some suggestions that I can improve my performance and get some motivation.

Thanks in Advance

Keep hope and participate.

At least that's what I do.

To be honest, if you have tried all the possible practice strategies (virtual participation, etc.) and solved so many problems (2000 problems are no joke, considering that those problems you picked are hard for you and not 800 rated problems), but still your rating is <= 1300, then it really seems to me cp is not for you. Go try something else, something you are not only passionate about and but also something that you are also naturally good for. Different people have different talents and you may just have another, just not cp, and thats perfectly ok — there's nothing bad in that. If you love doing CP, just do it as for fun without at all caring for rating.

I think it's useless to torture yourself in such way. Find other interests instead of doing something that brings you into such depression. Agree, that everyone is individual and some people able, some unable. We all have different abilities, so find activity that you will be better than others, and live a happy life!

Practice harder problems...It's not about problem count, but problem difficulty (at least according to various highly rated members)

it's just my personal idea, but i think that analysing the problem after solving plays a great role in improvnment, like in what way you would have approached the problem so that you would have reached the solution faster, or what was wrong in your approach, or thinking about problem intuitively like focusing of what problem is asking and then approaching it in intuitive manner.

it's just my personal idea, i don't know it will be applicable for all or not.

Are you rainboy? (Sorry, I'm just kidding), I think there must be areas where you are good at, you can put your energy on it. Of course, if you love algorithm competitions and feel happy, why not stick to it?

    rainboy solves problems from the end, hence the huge variation in rating.

Did you always practice problems +300 above your rating....else all your numbers 2000 or 3000 or 5000 mean nothing ...

    It doesn't matter how hard the problems he upsolve but how fast and how many problems he solves during the contest especially if you care about rating.
