So I solved 363 problems on cf, but Im still a newbie. What should I do to improve? Maybe my mistake is that all my solved problems are too easy? Thanks in advance!

I've seen your statistics. Because you wasted your time in doing easy questions you are not improving. it is better to solve 50 1500-1600 questions rather than 350+ easy questions

look at my graph for motivation, I had solved 500+ problems ranging from (800 to 1300) but still i was newbie .

To reach pupil you have to be good and fast in 800 to 1300 range questions.

Practice 50 problems of each difficulty level, starting from 800 to 1700. Never look at your rating. Ultimately one day you will become very good at cp. (maybe far above then pupil)

Thanks

Participate in a lot of contests and after each the contest is finished, focus on solving the problems in which you didn't get accepted and try the ones you didn't submit. Also, try to learn a new topic and get 2 or 3 accepted solutions on that topic. That got me to pupil once. Just do a bunch of contests (from different sites) and solve the problems after the contest ends.

And maybe this is too much to say, but: don't look at the tests cases, don't look at the solution, don't look at the tag! at least you had actually tried to solve the problem.
