WCC is here

The World Computing Championships® are collaborative assessment-as-learning experiences for students around the world.

We believe summative assessment should be inclusive and a demonstration of depth-in-learning, rather than focusing on elitism and superficial statistics like algorithm speed. For this reason, the World Computing Championships® group students who have been exposed to similar levels of programming and are excited to develop their competitive programming skills.

The WCC® consists of FOUR CONTESTS every season. Each contest is held online over a single weekend and is asynchronous (participants can complete each round at their convenience over the weekend). In addition, we also have TWO LEVELS of entry - Junior and Senior.

Level Junior Senior
Age 13-16 16-19
Contest 1 2-5 October 2020 N/A 2020
Contest 2 December 2020 N/A 2020
Contest 3 February 2021 N/A 2021
Contest 4 April 2021 N/A 2021

Inaugural Round will be held in October 2020

This WCC® Junior level contest will be held online over the weekend of 2nd - 5th October 2020 and is asynchronous (participants can complete each round at their convenience over the weekend).
To support development costs, the price of registration is SGD (Singapore Dollars) 5 per student.
Note: for now, this is being offered at ONLY JUNIOR LEVEL.

REGISTRATION

While this may change in the future, as of now students cannot register for competitions themselves. Registration and payments are only possible through a parent or teacher account.

Once parents / teachers have completed all the necessary steps, student login details need to be passed on to the student.


AWARD CATEGORIES

  • Implementation - because it's one thing to know coding, and another to use coding to solve real-world problems
  • Resourcefulness - because some tasks come with obstacles that have to be overcome
  • Creativeness - because some problems require you to step out of the box
  • Individual - because we want to be challenged to be the best we can possibly be
  • Team - because we need others to help us achieve our dreams

Individual Rounds will be individually completed by each participant, while Team Rounds will be completed by teams ('existing friends' or with the same residence / nationality)

Each contest consists of 6 rounds, which are grouped into the above categories as follows:

Implementation Resourcefulness Creativeness
Individual Olympiad Decode Debug
Team Target Detective Optimise


Participants sometimes think deeply alone, work in teams, be inspired by speakers and develop using their imagination!
This unique platform also enables participants to network and build lasting friendships - usually the main highlight of their schooling years.

The most important prizes to be had are the intangibles ones gained from such an experience. On top of that all particiants receive:

  • Transcript of relative attainment
  • Certificates for top ranking individuals across each contest series
