Birla Vidya Niketan,Saket held its annual computer symposium on 25th July.I went there for senior programming.This was my first competition in 6 years.Considering that, I did pretty well with a third position.My school’s web designers got the first prize in web designing.It was quite a hectic day.
The reporting time for the event was 8:30am.But due to some confusion about the bus we had to travel in,we left the school at 8:20.We reached BVN at 9:00am in the school ambulance.There was some confusion about the number of students so we ended up in the school Ambulance.
When we reached at 9:00am,I saw an entry made 2 minutes before our arrival, in the entry log.It said that the judge had arrived.I had a feeling that we weren’t much late.We had to wait till 9:45am for the event to start as one of the judges hadn’t arrived.
The programming competition was from 10am-12pm.There were 5 questions carrying 60,100,200,200 and 300 marks.The last two questions were based on graphics,so I immediately ruled them out.The marking was based on attempts and time elapsed.I did my best or perhaps I could have done a little better.But,at the end of 2 hours I was satisfied with what I had done.
We just had enough time to wait for the prize distribution as we had to catch our school bus.The Code Warriors president and my buddy-Ankur Banerjee a.k.a GQ had convinced me to go for this competition and after it I feel that he did something really nice.
PS-Today,my English teacher agreed to forgive me for not doing my homework due to my absence in the class when I told her about my third position.
