Tutorial round. This is the first round of the programming competition, where teams will familiarize themselves with the equipment and questions may be asked. This round is not scored, and is just for solving any technical issues. We will not proceed to the next round until every contestant has correctly answered each question in this round.
Warm-up round. This round of the competition will consists of very easy problems, which confirms that every contestant understands how to take inputs and submit. This round is also not scored, and we will not proceed to the speed round until everyone has completed these questions.

Speed round. This round of the competition will consist of multiple problems of varying difficulty, which each team will strive to complete the fastest. Each problem will be given a set amount of points, and a correct response will award the team points for this problem.
4:30 - 5:20
AP round. This round of the competition will consist of multiple problems based off past AP exam FRQs. These questions will have many steps to them, will take much longer to complete, and will match the difficulty of an AP exam. A correct response along with speed will determine the amount of points received for each problem.
5:25 - 6:05
Multiple Choice Round. Each team will be expected to complete an AP style multiple choice test. These questions will be taken from past AP exams and created by AP teachers or former AP Computer Science A students. It is not a huge factor for score, but it will be scored.
