College student appearing in school ranklist.

Although I did not participate in the January Long, when I opened the ranklist and used the School filter in the institution tab, I saw that the first Indian School student was additya1998. However, on opening his profile, I saw that he studies in IIIT-H. But then he should’nt be appearing in the school ranklist. I think that this may be a glitch. @admin , please see into this matter, so that the deserving school students do get the laddus for the top 5 position, as it is the incentive for many codechef students.


This is happening a lot. Lots of people who are not school students are registering as school students even though they are not for getting laddus. For example -


@admin please see.

I think the solution is to ask for the school ID-card and proof just like they did for ICPC for schools.


Asking for school ID card might be hard to implement. But what they can do is atleast take action when someone complains.

I have mailed the problem to codechef and I recommend all of you to do the same.
