Hello Codeforces!

Since I saw a lot of discussions regarding this topic, I wanted to see what the (actual) correlation between CP and Math skill is.

So, I am asking you to complete the following form and I will post the results and conclusions after I get enough responses (probably in around 2-3 days).

Maybe it won't be the most accurate measure, feel free to post suggestions to additional questions which would make the survey more accurate.

UPD: Results are out!

since there are so many math competitions, i don't know if it's possible to get a good measure of math skill. maybe you should make a contest or like a few questions for people to do

What is the point? It's not like it would affect practice: the best way to get better at CP is to solve CP problems. I doubt it would bring any new insight: you need to be good at problem-solving for both, so it makes sense to have at least some correlation. Otherwise, such discussions just seem to give people an excuse for their lack of skills...

    In around 2-3 days to give more people time to complete it
