I am currently a newbie ,started giving contests about a month ago and I am mostly able to solve div2 and div3 A and B problems in the contests I have given till now. But that is where I get stuck , I am not able to solve the C problems. Edit: reached pupil after Div3 916

Solve Div-2 A,B very fast and accurate also. You will reach 1200+ easily.. Then you will have enough time to think about C. And if you solve C often, you will reach specialist.

    yeah just remember you have to solve problem X fast before solving problem X+1. For this reason "focus on VPs for a while and then focus on problemset for another while" may be a good strategy.

          I perform better in VP's but not in live contest like that.Just because of performance pressure.How to be good at that?

            For me it's the opposite. I need pressure to make my brain work.

                While attempting contests, I tend to focus more on problem solving than any other aspect. Maybe you can also try to just focus on improving your problem solving skills + learning new stuffs and eventually you will gain rating as a by product.

                  Great,i will do this for sure.But can you tell me how to disable standings page during contest.That is my biggest distraction.Whenever I don't open that my contests go well otherwise not.

                  Even if there was a way to disable it, you'd already knew how to enable it again. So, why not just increase your will to focus better.

      ad hoc(different ideas for each problem), basic sorting and greedy usually is enough to get Div2 A and B in contests,practice problems rated 800-1000 since your rating is around 600.

to reach specialist you need to solve a, b and c ind div2 or a-e in div3, it will give you up to 200 rating ( depends to your speed )

At any cost, you must give all educational div 2 and div 3 rounds. They're the rounds in which you have the highest chance of a positive. Keep spamming virtual contests EVERY SINGLE DAY. There is no shortcut to it. The best way to stay motivated and on the grind everyday is through virtual contests.

Div2c or Div3d/e should lead you to cyan.

At first, try to solve AtCoder ABC first 4 questions , all within limited time , this site give nice complex knowledge about data structure(which needed to reach) , Mostly Div2C (according my exp) is math of basic algorithm, such as DP, binary search, bfs,dfs,dejkstra , so if you have a issue in this algo , solve them:), at last you should read a blog of E869120 about how to reach a new rank. In conclusion I wish you to reach your goal, good luck!)
