Beestar Competition Format

  • BNC is online. Each competition (full score 160 points) has 2 rounds; each round (80 points) has 4 exams of 20 points each.

  • In the competition week, the competition starts on Monday and ends on Thursday night at 11:59 p.m.

  • Round 1 is the Dash Round (80 points). It consists of 4 exams focusing on the fundamentals. Each exam of the Dash Round has 10 questions and each question is worth 2 points. Students have a window of 2 days (all day Monday and Tuesday) to complete Round 1 (about 60 minutes for 4 exams).

  • Round 2 is the Spark Round (80 points). It consists of 4 exams of interesting and challenging problems. Each exam of the Spark Round has 5 questions and each question is worth 4 points. Students have a window of 2 days (all day Wednesday and Thursday) to complete Round 2 (about 60 minutes for 4 exams).

  • In each round, students can work on its 4 exams any time within the 2-day window. The system times each exam individually when the student opens it. In average, one exam takes less than 15 minutes. If an exam is not submitted within 30 minutes, the session will time out and that exam will not be counted.

  • Students should work on the exams in the given sequential order because some questions may be based on the context of previous ones.

  • The rankings are based on a student's accuracy scores. If two scores are tied, speed is the tie-breaker.

  • On Saturday, each participant will see the competition scores, percentile, and statistic data in his/her account. The top students in the competition will be recognized and honored on the competition result page.

Beestar system ranks students by the total score of the 2 rounds. The full score is 160, as each round is worth 80 points. The total time serves as a tie-breaker. We award the top 80 students medals: 20 gold medals, 20 silver medals, and 40 bronze medals. We also have honorable mentions for those with fairly good scores. In case there are significantly more students with high scores, we may award more medals proportionally.
