The NOI.PH 2016 National Finals was held in De La Salle Lipa. It consisted of two rounds on-site, each of which consisted of four problems.

NOI.PH Finals Round 1

Almost all our participants finished the first subtask of 1A: A Simple Problem!, each giving them eight points. Ian Vincent Palabasan (Rizal National Science High School), Franz Louis Cesista (Philippine Science High School – Eastern Visayas Campus), and Joaquin Jose Lopez (Philippine Science High School – Main Campus) scored the first two subtasks. Proving that is indeed a simple problem was Robin Yu (Xavier School) finishing all subtasks and getting 100 points for it. Participants seem to really really really really really really like 1B: Confidential Message since most of them scored at least 32 points for answering the first two subtasks. Robin went above and beyond and finished the next two subtasks too, netting him a total of 72 points. Three participants scored a perfect 100 for 1D: Pabebe Girl Cuts Cake. Truly, hindi sila napigilan until the system told them tama na ‘yan after submitting their code. Finally, only one participant attempted 1C: The King and Queen of Rock and Roll. Robin Yu was the only one to submit code for this problem, and it was code that succesfully treated all subtasks. This nets him another 100 points.

NOI.PH Finals Round 2

Robin and Farrell did not make us paasa since they both got a perfect score in 2A: Paasa Numbers. In addition, Robin, Franz and Farrell kept cruising and can’t stop won’t stop coding until they also managed to get a perfect score in 2B: Shake It Off. The participants, though, had a little trouble with 2C: Candles For Everyone as no one managed to pass any subtask beyond the second. Finally, Robin impresses us again one final time this year, as he was the only contestant to score in 2D: Goodbye, Awkward Goodbyes!, managing to finish all but the last subtask.
