IPhO 2010

Sarda from Mumbai, Mehul Kumar from Jaipur; Sanchar Sharma from Jodhpur; Shivam Handa from Delhi and Vipul Singh from Bhilai will all represent India in the 41st IPhO 2010 to be held in Zagreb, Croatia, from July 17 to 25. About 36,000 students from across the nation participated in the first level examination. Of these, 312 were selected to move up to the next level, the Indian National Physics Olympiad (INPhO) examination. The INPhO examination was conducted in 15 centres across the nation and 37 students were selected to participate in an intensive training camp from May 4 to 17. On Monday, the five finalists were declared. In physics, India has been faring rather well at the Olympiads — since some years, the Indian team's tally has remained similar , it has bagged four gold medals and a silver.
