FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

  1. What if I have solved some questions beforehand?
    Codestudio automatically picks it up if you have solved them on their platform, no worries we got you covered. For Leetcode you can put the codes into your GitHub repo.
  2. How is the leaderboard calculated?
    It will be ranked by the number of problems solved, in the case of ties, it ranks on the basis of who solved it first.
  3. Do I get to choose any particular prize?
    No, unfortunately not.
  4. Do we have any leaderboards outside Codestudio?
    No, unfortunately not yet. Leetcode APIs are not public, so it will be tough for us to build and will require a lot of effort and time, thereby we decided to drop it. We are grateful to Coding Ninjas for giving this tech to us for free and sponsoring this challenge.
