  • Regarding the Student Rockstar, the Coding Challenge held every month is the jackpot.. Do well in the coding challenge and you can easily gain 1000+ points per month.. Also participate actively in the forums. Other paths to points are - upload whitepapers (One request, keep it original...), download others whitepapers and rate them , post announcements and finally, login daily not only to get points but to gain knowledge too...


    All the very best for your success in the competition....

    Prepare for the coding challenge by taking the mock test at Devsquare... This will let you know how the environment is and familiarize yourself with the same...

  • Hello Raghuram,


    can u know what is the date is consider for counting the points means it is counted by the joining date or from the month end means 31st or 30th.

  • The point accural takes place at the end of each month. Since this is the first month of the contest, if the accural is delayed, dont panic. It happens maximum in a weeks time.

  • @Krunal,

    There is no fixed date for point updation. From my past expereince in the last competition, point updation took place anytime , in the last 3 days of the month or the first 3 days of the consecutive month. So sit tight. No need to worry about the updation, it'll happen when they should happen.


    Good luck!

  • Well Krunal i m also a newcomer in Rockstar but i can suggest you whatever i have gained in these days,

    Way to score

    First and easiest way is through referals just inform your friends and make them participate as you will get the points for it.

    Second way is College website, its the best one as u know better how ur college site should look like,

    there are few more ways to score such as replying in forums, responding to others replies

    Score throughout the period of approx 10 months and you can defintely make it to the top,

    Its really not that tough as it seems.
