This is an online event spanning for four days and will be open for 3 hours each day from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM. The participant can start the contest anytime within this time frame and will be allowed to play for 90 minutes from his start time till the portal has been closed.

The event will have 3 sections (hard, medium and easy). The participant will be directed to the hard section at first and the other sections remain locked. Once the participant feels the need to shift to the next section (medium), he can permanently lock the hard section and move on to the medium section. The same procedure is applicable for the transition from medium to easy. The participant with most points at the end of the third day wins.

Missed out on a day of participation? Worry not. You can still solve the previous day's questions in that 3 hour period the next day. As you may expect, the scores will be reduced for those problems. For further details about scoring, please visit judging criteria. You can only see questions from the immediate previous day. That is, you cannot see 1st day's questions on 3rd day.
