Hackerrank pass or fail?

Hello, I had a hackerrank intern screening at visa and I had a brute force solution to one of the questions and 6/12 cases passed. The other 6 didn’t fail but had a stopwatch next to them. I went ahead and submitted as I have other interviews, but does anyone know if this ruins my chances at advancing further?

    Code all your solutions as "sleep(1000000)", no test cases will fail and fingers crossed you'll be invited for an on-site.

      Nice try, they’ll just time out. Now if you can manage to get some shellcode running and exit their grading process...

      Time out is better than failure

    Not passing all the test cases most likely mean not passing.

  • I got almost every problem right and for the last one I passed 6/8 test cases and I was rejected. Don't hold your breath. 😥

    Stopwatch means Time Limit Exceeded. How many questions were there? If just one, then chances are low but depending on other questions it can differ.
