Highest scoring submission counts. For submissions to be counted, they must be submitted within a week after the release of the problem, i.e. before the next PoTW is released.


There are around 5-15 testcases for each problem, and points are earned per testcase. The maximum score of a problem will reflect the difficulty of the problem. 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
