How to collect Cups?

Depends on student’s engagement and results, he/she collects Cups for submitting solutions. If submitted solutions are consistently better and the PSC participant moves up the Hall of Fame ranks, he/she earns Cups along the way.

In addition, everyone who registers for PSC receives My PSC referral link.

The link is unique to each PSC participant and appears on My Account page. Each PSC participant can invite others to participate in the PSC challenge.

If referred PSC participant submits variables regularly and climbs the PSC ranks – the link owner also earns cups- It’s a win-win!

All referred contacts made during PSC challenge are carried forward to the next challenge in the following year. This means you continue to earn PSC Cups when your friends return to the game.

To activate your PSC Cups collection ability in the following year, you need to make the first variables submission too.

PSC Student Ambassador

A PSC Student Ambassador can be either an undergraduate, postgraduate or Ph.D. student.

The PSC Student Ambassador title is awarded to the PSC participant who achieves the highest number of registrations through his/her My PSC referral link.

Please note: every referred friend must submit variables to PSC at least once!

Award: Amazon Voucher worth €80

International students will be offered Amazon vouchers in the currency of their respective countries (as long as it’s applicable).

The minimum number of referred registrations to be considered for the award is 15.

We also recognize others who contribute to the PSC in a creative way in spite of the PSC referral program. 

If you don’t feel like working with My PSC referral link, you can be totally creative and introduce PSC to your fellow students in your special creative way. We will recognize your efforts!
