Once you have filled the waitlist for neoG Camp 2023 Cohort, you must first start doing levelZero and become a mark15 to apply for levelOne and get admission to 2023 camp if you are taking the beginner route.
Please go through this checklist and Adarsh Balika's portfolio to ensure that your portfolio has these minimum requirements before you apply for portfolio reviews on the admission platform.
Please go through the admission guide to understand the flow of admission to neoG Camp 2023.
the 15-point system
Your application into levelOne will be considered only if you are a mark15. The assignments and markings are divided mark-wise to help you keep your pace and not get overwhelmed if you are an absolute beginner.
All the best.😁
how to ask for help
We have a 21k+ developers community at Discord who is always ready to solve your issues while you are learning to code with us. You can ask for help
But before you ask for help, please first try to debug your code yourself. Here is a guide to help you do that. This would enhance your understanding to a great extent.
Help is given at team Tanay whenever it is asked. :D

Read more about the admission process here.
watching levelZero videos is not compulsory
If you do all these without watching the videos for levelZero, we are okay with that too. What matters is that you have a complete portfolio to apply to levelOne and have practiced the concept well for the interview.
Don't submit without understanding, we have kept a manual interview round only to check that.
We will be checking your understanding of the code. Any random project and would ask you to explain the code, maybe ask for minor changes in the codebase on the call itself.
Understand that we are not against copying work. The idea is that while copying you need to understand it. The best way is that if you're stuck somewhere, see someone's work, but don't copy it, type it yourself, without seeing from your mind. Then it becomes yours.
We have a community of 100K+ programmers on social media. Please do share your projects and your wins with us. We are here to help, uplift and guide. Welcome to the community.
