I started CS50x in August of 2016, and I started Problem Set 6 before the deadline around November. I completed Problem Set 6 for 2016 after the deadline. I submitted Problem Set 6 a week ago, and it has not been graded. Since I am working online, my projects are always graded the day after submission. I'm a little nervous about whether or not my Problem Set 6 will carry over, especially since the Gradebook for 2017 isn't open yet.

Since I started Problem Set 6 before the deadline and submitted it after the deadline, will it still count? Will I have to submit to the 2017 Gradebook from now on?

Thanks in advance.

  • When it is ready ;). If I had to guess I would say it is more likely than not that it is ready by March.

  • @snoram Thank you for this, but do you know if my problem set 6 grade will still count? I submitted it after the deadline, so will it still go to my grades? Feb 8, 2017 at 18:04
  • Well, since the assignments are different, I suppose that it will not count as a grade. Thank you. You might want to mark this as an answer so you get credit :-) Feb 8, 2017 at 18:41

From the Edx FAQs:

any scores you received on past years' problem sets will (soon) be imported into CS50x 2017. (We’re still updating CS50x 2017’s gradebook.) However, moving forward, you must submit CS50x 2017’s problem sets, per the syllabus.

So from now on you can only submit via the 2017 gradebook.

However consider the two possible cases:

If the assignments are equal

you can just submit via the new system when it is ready.


The assignments are different so you have to do the new problem set. The old one will only count in your "experiencebook" or perhaps you can directly copy some parts of it. But don't worry, it didn't go to waste; you surely improved a lot as a programmer as you battled with each step and you will have much less problems dealing with pset6 2017 version.
