Coding Quest 2022 - Bangkok Prep

Coding Quest 2022

This month our students participated in the inaugural Coding Quest competition (codingquest.io). In this competition tasks were released each evening and students were rewarded for how quickly they were able to solve the problems that were set. The problems increased in difficulty each day. On the final day our students were given the demanding challenge of uncovering a message hidden inside the binary of a JPG image file (steganography)!

We are proud to announce that Bangkok Prep placed 5th out of 33 schools – which is an amazing achievement considering that many of our IGCSE and AS / A Level students could not participate due to their exam season commitments.

We would like to give a special mention to the following students:

  • Pip (Y9) – first student at Bangkok Prep to complete all 10 days
  • Ton Son (Y10) – #1 at Bangkok Prep and made the top ten in the global leaderboard on 2 days
  • Pong (Y10) – #2 at Bangkok Prep and made the top ten in the global leaderboard on 1 day
  • Mooli (Y10) – #3 at Bangkok Prep and made the top ten in the global leaderboard on 1 day
  • Pearn (Y10) – global top 10 on 1 day, global top 20 on two days
  • Arsh (Y9) – first student at Bangkok Prep to complete the challenge on 1 day and 6 challenges completed overall
  • Ronit (Y10) – placing in the global top 20 leaderboard on 1 day and 3 challenges completed overall
  • Praewa (Y9) – completing 3 days’ worth of challenges
  • Oskar (Y11) – completing 3 days’ worth of challenges
  • Namo (Y10) – completing 3 days’ worth of challenges

We look forward to next year’s competition!
