  • No doubt the duration is long. And this long time span has lots of positive points such as

    1. You get surplous amount of time to compete.
    2. You get more time to learn.
    3. You get to know about each other more.

  • I feel the time span is perfect. It will help us accumulate points and clear the 10K barrier easily. Also it will help good challengers to make a comeback in case they suffer a setback at some point.

  • Definitely the contest duration is long.
    But the contest duration and the 10000 points mark go hand in hand.
    Ideally it would have been much better with slightly smaller duration and also not so high (10000) points mark.

  • does they write anywhere that there is a 10000 pt limit???

  • @Akshat - * Top 300 with a minimum of 10,000 points <-- tht is mentioned on the page http://www.studentrockstar.com/KnowMoreAboutStud.aspx


    I  myself do think that the cnotest is a long duration. the contest will be continuing through my 5th semester, and also my entire 6th semester of MCA> That is really a long duration. Also considering the 10K limit, the admins have done just to it, but reducing the ponit limit would be better option, rather than increasing the time duration.

    Also long long duration contest will bore the participants. We even got bored sometimes during the first small contest. lets see how much we have to bear this time Smile But the great thing is that we are having rockstar-II contest, and thats the most important Smile kudos to the admins.

    And this time the admins are also really active <-- this must be mentioned Smile

  • i dont think so the duration is long..this time is optimum for the contest..no matter how long it is gaining knowledge is important...yet as tha contest duration increases the more competition arises,,,so its good...a short duration contest is not worth...
