RookieRank 3

Starts in


Calling out all first timers and those new to competitive programming. RookieRank invites all levels of programmers who have never participated in a rated algorithms competition before to experience the thrill! Rookies will have 48 hours to solve 5 algorithm challenges. We will have two leaderboards. One for all first-time competitive programmers. These are users who are not listed on the Algorithms Leaderboard. We will have a separate leaderboard for all rated users. These are users who have participated in rated algorithms contests before.


Top 3 coders ranked on the official leaderboard win a Champion T-Shirt. We will also reward 10 coders picked at random from the top 200 on the leaderboard with a Champion T-Shirt. You must be a rookie to be eligible to win a T-Shirt

  • 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.
  • 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.
