I have this doubt always.

Competitive coding sites such as Codechef, Hackerrank, Topcoder etc., in general, ask for college name and so on. If I'm a beginner and takes for me a lot of failure trails while submitting even a small code.

I'm afraid of it and generally does not use them. Are my prejudices worth?

    Nobody is born an excellent coder. So there is no need to hide that you initially made lots of silly and basic mistakes. We know you have made those mistakes, whether that is documented or not. – Maarten Buis Apr 2 at 11:23
  • Just look at some of the questions on SO - a question gets posted and the answer is simple : the OP comes back with "That's why" or "blast I missed that" and "Thanks so much..." – Solar Mike Apr 2 at 12:57

    It's easy enough to create a new account if you want to use your coding site results as some sort of credential for future work, but tbh I highly doubt anyone really cares how many tries it took you to get a result. They care more about if you can solve problems and how well you solve problems. – scrappedcola Apr 2 at 14:31
