Frequently asked questions

Eolymp Cup is a programming competition meant to promote computer science and programming among students. The competition consists of 4 rounds, held throughout the year. Each round features 6 problems, each asking the participant to implement an algorithm using one of the programming languages. Depending on the correctness of the algorithm, the participant will be awarded points.

Anyone can participate in Eolymp Cup, but the prizes will only be awarded to participants born after January 1, 2002, and do not live in the sanctioned countries.

All other participants will participate unofficially.

The first round will be held on July 6th, 2024. The following rounds will be in: September, November and December 2024. Please follow us on social media to stay up to date: Telegram, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp.

There are four rounds, in each round, you are given 3 hours to solve 6 problems. Each problem is split into sub-tasks, which represent part of the problem. The points are awarded by sub-task, meaning you have to solve an entire sub-task to get points.

There are four rounds, in each round a participant can score up to 1000 points. The contest's overall rating is calculated as the sum of the top three scores among all rounds. In other words, if you participated in all four rounds, we will disregard your worst round and take the scores of the other three. If you participated in three or fewer rounds, all of them will be taken into account.

If two participants have the same number of points, we will order them by time of the last productive submission in ascending order. The last productive submission is the last submission which gave points to the participant in a given round. The time of the last productive submission is calculated as the number of seconds from the beginning of each round.

Top-3 winners of each round and 2 participants selected randomly among Top-50 will be awarded fully funded scholarships at Harbour.Space University, which includes:

  • Full Tuition Fee Coverage: EUR 19,900 for Bachelor's programs or EUR 22,900 for Master's programs

  • Program Choice: all programs of HSU across tech, business, and design are in scope

  • Campus Choice: choose to study in one of HSU’s campuses in two vibrant cities, in Barcelona or Bangkok

  • Internship opportunities: you will also be offered to join Talent Pool of Harbour.Space University and be considered for paid internship opportunities from university’s industry partners

The scholarships are only played among participants who marked "I'm interested in scholarship" during registration and who have not received scholarship in previous rounds.

School rating is an additional rating where educational institutions are ranked based on the results of their students. The students specify a university or a school they are representing during the registration process. The students must be enrolled in the school to represent it.

Despite its name, the ranking includes all educational institutions: universities, schools, colleges etc.

The institutions are ranked based on the total number of points scored by their students.

After each round, the top 10 institutions as well as 10 randomly selected institutions among these who scored at least 100 points, will be awarded a coupon for Eolymp Competition Platform. The coupon will give a 100% discount for Advanced plan for the first 6 months with up to 100 seats. Extra seats can be purchased at price 0.25 EUR per seat. After first 6 months the subscription will be renewed at price 0.25 EUR per seat. You will be able to cancel subscription at any time.

To claim the reward, a representative of the institution should reach out to Eolymp support team via support@eolymp.com, after the rating has been published.

We prepare original, challenging problems for each contest.

We also accept problems from the community, so if you have an idea, you can email us at support@eolymp.com

We guarantee that problems are presented in English, Spanish and Ukrainian, but we try to translate problems to as many languages as possible.

Yes, all contests allow upsolve, i.e., you can continue solving problems after the contest is finished.
