I thought it depends on who solved it first(in case of ties)

It is by total points for the 8 problems given in the problem set for the week. In the event of ties, it is currently broken by a random number generator. We plan to introduce a leader board which lists the scores of students, and hence you can see the extent of ties.

Note that since points are awarded based on difficulty of the problem, students in different levels will get a different total number of points in each set.

I guess it is based on the total points we have accumulated from solving the 8 problems in each subject per week. In case of ties, hmm...maybe the one who solved faster gets the higher rank? :)
