Does solving practice problems will improve the CodeChef rating?
Codechef Rating only changes when you participate in Rated contest

In some sense, yes it does. Practicing a lot will help you improve and then you can compete and get rating increase. But directly…Nope.
Doing practice problems on CodeChef doesn’t increase your rating. The only way to increase your rating on CodeChef is participating in rated contest.
In general, there are three monthly rated contest and sometimes more.
Long Challenges - Mostly starts in 1st week of every month and last for 10 days.
Short Challenges - Cook-off and Lunchtime which are more or less organized in 3rd and 4th week of every month respectively. (Duration 3 hours.)
No,it will not improve the ratings directly.
