TCS CodeVita Round 1 Rules:
  • There is No Negative Marking. applicants can submit as many solutions in as many languages they feel comfortable with.
  • Presentation Error status is treated the same as Accepted status. Once you get a PE, move on to next question. Don't waste time trying to get it "Accepted".
  • Two team member submitting the correct solution for the same problem will count only once against the team scores. It is a dumb strategy for both team members to work on the same problem independently. Teammates have to co-operate and compete as one unit against other teams.
  • By now you must know the difference between Public Test Cases (those used as examples in problem text) and Private test cases. Passing Public Test cases is no guarantee that your code passes private test cases too. Don't send emails or make phone calls to support helpline asking them why it shows "Accepted" in Compile & Run functionality but "Wrong Answer" in Submissions page.
  • Applicants have to follow the checklist given below in the same order,
