MY codechef rank decreased for no reason!!

My rank went from 15k to 63229 in just one day. I don’t know why this happened @admin Pls reply!!

Maybe it’s because you didn’t solve a single problem in the last contest you participated in.

Yes!! 15k to 63k dont you think this is a little too much!!how much time It will take me to get back!!

Apparently you submitted a solution in September Mega Cookoff (cook86). Even though it was an unsuccessful submission(Wrong Answer), it still makes you a participant and thus you are assigned a rank, which is the reason you took -184 in rating and the fall in overall rank.

Here is the solution that you submitted: this is how they calculate your rating. And just perform good in the next one you will get back there in no time.

how much time it will take me to get back ??Any idea?

solve 4-5 questions in the next long challenge and you should be back up there.

You can look into my account . I was in the same situation that you were in a few months ago . Although I do recovered upto 4 stars but I am down again to 3 . The only thing you need to do now is practice more and don’t lose interest .

just keep solving and learning and try to solve 2-3 questions in the next lunchtime which is on 30th of Sep. Good Luck!
