Each challenge posted in TopCoder Studio will carry a total point value. Placement points will be awarded based on the number of submissions that pass screening and receive a cash award, as follows:

Percentage of Placement Points
  # of Submissions (Passed and Awarded)
Place 1 2 3 4 5
1st 100% 70% 65% 60% 56%
2nd   30% 25% 22% 20%
3rd     10% 10% 10%
4th       8% 8%
5th         6%

If more than five (5) submissions are ranked, the competitors who place in 6th position or below will not receive any placement points.

Up to 100% of placement points may be deducted for bugs or late final fixes. 20% of placement point will be deducted for every (24) hours a final fix is late. On a case-by-case basis, as determined by TopCoder Studio staff, additional placement points may be deducted for issues found in submissions, including (but not limited to) cheating or use of copyrighted materials, within 30 days of completion.
