Xuberance '21

Starts in


Hello freshers!

We at IE-NITK are excited to invite you to Xuberance '21!

This contest has been designed to give you an insight into the electrifying world of competitive programming.
You'll have two hours to solve five of our cherry-picked problems.

Our sole intention of organizing this contest is that we want you to learn while competing, and appreciate the intricacies involved in a timed coding contest. Don't worry if you find yourself a little stuck on a problem - it's an opportunity to learn something new!

So put on your coding hat, flex those brain muscles, and have fun!

And while you're at it, perhaps check us out at ie.nitk.ac.in to know who we are and what we do :D

  • Code directly from our platform, which supports over 30 languages. Learn more here.
  • During the contest, you are allowed to use any books and personal notes as well as code written by you beforehand personally.
  • You may use third party code with the following restrictions:
    • The code was written and published before the start of the contest.
    • The code is generated using tools that were written and published before the start of the contest.
  • Please do not discuss strategies, suggestions, tips, and subjects related to the problems with anybody, including other participants, until the end of the contest. The organizers have the right to monitor the participants' honesty in behaviour and disqualify a participant if violations are found. We believe the main motive of the participants shouldn't be to, fairly or by unfair means, top the leaderboard. Rather, it should be to try a few problems, tinker around, and learn something new, all in good competitive spirit :)


  • 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
