Testimonials (A word from our certified programmers)

It was fun preparing for exams; I started taking up solving regular contests more seriously; also, because of a deadline to complete, I solved many problems from the learn section. The exam centre was also perfect. Overall it was an excellent experience.
It helped me to learn dynamic programming. My advice is to attempt and up solve all regular contests. Practice the question in learn section and the mock test. Don't forget to practice Dynamic Programming.

Foundation Level, Certified on 8th May 2022

The exam provided me with a great experience in DSA foundation-level concepts. The exam felt really easy because I could master the basics of DSA with the free materials provided on the CodeChef website. I'm looking forward to attempting the advanced level sometime in the future.
It is valuable in my case because I'm currently in BTech's 1st year, and this will add a significant boost to my resume for my future internships and jobs.
I recommend anyone who wants to take the certification to study DSA basics concepts at a slow pace and practice more questions at the same time to make concepts clear.

The exam was fantastic, and the CodeChef community is super helpful. Preparing for the exam, making sure that I practised DSA regularly. This, in turn, helped me to improve my problem-solving skills. Having a certificate from CodeChef feels good, as it is a well-known organization. It also helps me know where I stand regarding problem-solving skills. Finally, I would like to thank CodeChef for conducting this successfully.
its always on the top of my priority list; I would recommend everyone who wants to improve their DSA skills to take the exam.

Why Data Structures and Algorithms?

Being a good programmer is more than knowing a programming language. It’s about understanding DSA, and solving problems efficiently. DSA is integral to all computer science technologies, be it software development, blockchain, AI and machine learning, or high-performance computing


Helps you crack interviews at top tech companies.

DSA based assessments are a part of the first level assessment for most leading companies. Knowing the optimal ways to solve a problem can save millions of dollars when at scale - a quality that organisations value.
