The first Don Mills Open Programming Competition of 2015 will be held on Tuesday, January 13 from 3:30 to 8:30 PM.

There were initially no plans for a January Contest due to exams, which is why Sentient came up with a contest based on exams! Therefore you may think of this as the January Contest, except that it will be 5 hours long rather than the usual 3 (the difficulty will remain similar to previous DMOPCs and it should take most participants about an hour to solve the first 3 problems).

You can access the contest page here.

Back in the days students were forced to choose between studying for their school exams and participating in programming contests. No more will they have to endure such harsh conditions! With the creation of the Exam Time Contest, you can prepare for your exams as you complete the questions in this contest.

Moreover, what was supposed to be an ordinary exam week at Don Mills takes a turn for the extraordinary in the last few problems.
