Hello Codeforces, After 7 month of practice I can't solve A,B during contest time. Sometimes I'm failing even at A. After solving around 200 A B problems still I'm not able to solve A B in the contest. So if there is some practice strategy suitable for me so what is that? Any Advice would be appreciated.

U should give every contest that's going around.

Look my graph, i know you will eventually make it! So relax and try to solve (your_rating + 300) difficulty problems

Even though I haven't given any contest. Experienced folks on CodeForces always tell newbies to solve problems which are slightly above your comfort zone and look at the editorial only when you run out of ideas. As long as you have ideas, you should investigate and implement it.

You can join a ladder based on your rating on A2oj and try to solve problems. You can leave the problems of difficulty 1 as these are very easy and there's nothing much to learn about. And yeah, give contests regularly and read editorials after that. Hope this helps! :)

Then try to solve C or D instead bro.
Believe me, you'll make great progress through this :)

Nobody can actually tell what suits you and what not, but you can of course find it yourself.

This is how I did: Go here: https://a2oj.com/ladders. Starting solving sequentially from ladder 11 or Div 2A. Keep a clock with yourself and invest time optimally. For the starting ladders you can skip to other ladder only when you feel comfortable. After practicing this much you can pick problems topic wise required for expert. Read editorials every time you get stuck and also help other people debug their code(it really helps) . Also don't forget to give contests once in a while.

Just don't give up bro/sis. Practice problems of ratings 100 more than your current rating. Be consistent. Solve questions not for color but for fun. Also you can connect with me if you haven't any friends because it's advised to have a coding buddy with you when you're doing CP.
