2021 Rules

  1. When competing you must stay on the the Challenge website except as indicated below.
  2. You are allowed to participate from home in the first round.
  3. All age groups can access our tutorials page if you need to.
  4. Senior and Elite students are allowed to use any programming IDE that you usually use in school, however, if you cannot access an IDE at home, you can write your programs directly in to the code area in the tasks. You are allowed to use documentation that is built into your IDE, even if this points to a separate website.
  5. You are allowed to use the official documentation website for the language you are using if you wish (e.g. https://docs.python.org/3.8/reference/index.html). You must not navigate to any other websites.
  6. You can use a simple text editor to perform search and replace procedures if any supplied data needs to be re-formatted for your particular programming language, e.g. you might want to replace double quotes with single quotes.
  7. You can bring in with you a maximum of 20 pages of A4 printed materials such as a syntax guide and/or your own notes. An example of an acceptable syntax guide can be found here: Coding Club Code Cards.
  8. Whether the finals takes place this year will depend on whether students are allowed back in to school.
  9. Unfortunately, due to the much more relaxed rules this year, we will only be issuing certificates. (There will be no prizes.)
