New Delhi, 2017: Ananye Agarwal,a young Physics enthusiast from Delhi has made India proud by displaying his prowess in the subject at the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) 2017, winning accolades and a gold medal for his performance.

A Science enthusiast from a very young age, Ananye has been coached by FIITJEE South Delhi Centre.

Ananye Agarwal from FIITJEE South Delhi Centre & Debaditya Pramanik from FIITJEE Kolkata Centre both turned up victorious and won Gold Medal at the 48th edition of the IPhO 2017 (International Physics Olympiad). IPHO 2017 was held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia from 16th to 24th July 2017.

“I have always loved Physics and I am extremely proud of the fact that I could compete and win at the international level. This achievement gives me immense confidence in my abilities. To master the amazing subject that is Physics, it is very important to have mentors who can take you through the concepts inside out. I am so fortunate to have been taught by faculty at FIITJEE who know what it takes to succeed at the international level. I am thankful to them for guiding me to success,” said Ananye Agarwal.

At FIITJEE, we have devised teaching mechanisms that push students much beyond theoretical concepts. We give students a fresh new vision and deep conceptual understanding of the subjects. Besides learning to apply concepts in day to day life, we make students develop analytical skills. We are extremely proud ofAnanye’s achievement and wish him all the best for the future,” said Mr. R L Trikha, Director, FIITJEE.

The International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) is an annual international physics competition for secondary school students. The aim of this competition is to enhance the development of international contacts in the field of school education in physics.

The participating countries have an obligation to host the IPhO in their territory. The organizer of the Olympiad is the Ministry of Education, the Physical Society or another appropriate institution of one of the participating countries where the competition being held. For Indonesia, the organizer is the Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC) of the Republic of Indonesia.

IPhO is a competition between individuals. Each participant has to solve both theoretical and experimental problems. The competition lasts for two days. One day is devoted to theoretical problems (three problems of five hour duration involving at least four areas of physics taught in secondary schools, the total number of the marks is 30). The other day is devoted to experimental problems (consist of one or two problems of five hour duration, the total number of the marks is 20).
