India shines at the International Olympiads 2017

In 2017 India continued its success in International Olympiads. As in previous years, nearly every Indian student who participated in the International Olympiads in Science and Mathematics held last year returned with a medal. In particular, India has secured 10 gold, 12 silver medals, 4 bronze medals, and 4 Honourable mentions among the 30 participants. One Indian student obtained the award for Best Performance in Theoretical Competition in the International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics in 2017.

Overall

Indian students have excelled at all the international Olympiads ever since participation started. Almost every student has won a gold, silver, bronze medal or an honourable mention. Over the years several Indian students have also won special awards for best performances in theoretical or experimental/ observational components in Science Olympiads.
