Educational Codeforces Round 77 (Div. 2) Postmortem

Link to contest.

What went well
  • I didn't give up.
  • I quickly figured out the approach for D, which was binary searching for the answer.
What went wrong
  • I got A four (!!!) minutes before the contest ended (at T + 01h56).
  • I didn't get D.
  • I incurred a lot of penalty from wrong-answering B (twice) and C (once).
  • I had no milk for my pre-contest coffee.
  • I felt pretty awful waking up at 0530 to do the contest.
Where I got lucky
  •  The contest was hard for everyone else, so I only lost less than 50 elo for my poor performance.
