Study process

There will be four selection tours and the second one will be on November 26.. The final list will be based on total rankings of all four tours. Don't worry if you fail to pass one of the tours, maybe you will have more luck in the next one! The rules can be found here.

Studying at WCC is divided into general coaching contests and thematic lectures with practice. In the beginning of the camp, all participants will be divided into three divisions A, B and C, based on the introductory contest results. We will also take your results on Olympiads and selection contests into consideration. Your divison defines the difficulty of coaching contests you will be given. We will try to come up with an optimal level for your trainings, and in case you find your division to be too difficult or easy, you will be able to switch it. After each contest you will be able to do tasks analyses and upsolve them in free time.
