A note on scoring:

The problems come in three levels of difficulty: A, B and C.
The "A"-level problems are intended to be easier than the "B"-level problems, which are intended to be easier than the "C"-level problems.
You can find a problem's difficulty in the problem overview before you click on it.  The difficulty of a problem determines how it will be scored. The scoring rules are as follows:
