Scholarship Test Guidelines

  1. All the participants need to know that the languages supported for the contest are C++, Java, Python.
  2. There will be a 5 per cent penalty for each wrong submission. For example, if a problem is of 100 marks and a participant makes a wrong submission, his marks will get reduced to 95. After the next wrong submission of the same problem, his marks are further reduced to 90.25 and so on. Therefore, you’re recommended to use ‘Compile & Test’ against sample test cases before each submission.
  3. Please refrain from discussing strategy during the contest. All submissions are run through a plagiarism detector. Any case of code plagiarism will reduce the score of the concerned participants to 0.
  4. It is advised to attempt the Sample Geeks Challenge to get familiar with the GeeksforGeeks coding environment.
