Prizes are TBD.


  • The creator of this contest is solely responsible for setting and communicating the eligibility requirements associated with prizes awarded to participants, as well as for procurement and distribution of all prizes. The contest creator holds HackerRank harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, costs, awards, settlements, orders, or fines.
  • Code directly from our platform, which supports over 30 languages. Learn more here.
  1. No brute forcing(this is mainly @someone, please do not randomly output stuff over and over until you get what you want).
  2. If working in groups, you become inelligible for prizes.
  3. You can use online references, but you may not copy someone else work.
  4. You may only compete in the highest class you are currently in or higher. I.e. If you are taking 240 you may compete in the 240 or 350 divisions. If you are in 247, the same applies. Whereas if you had taken 146, but have yet to take 240, you may compete in 146 or above.


  • Each challenge has a pre-determined score.
  • A participant’s score depends on the number of test cases a participant’s code submission successfully passes.
  • If a participant submits more than one solution per challenge, then the participant’s score will reflect the highest score achieved. In a game challenge, the participant's score will reflect the last code submission.
  • Participants are ranked by score. If two or more participants achieve the same score, then the tie is broken by the total time taken to submit the last solution resulting in a higher score
