New Delhi : Amritansh Nigam and Prachi Jindal students from Aakash BYJU’S, the national leader in test preparatory services, have made the organization and the nation proud by outshining in the prestigious International Biology Olympiad 2022 by securing a silver medal each for their stupendous performance. The students were selected by HBCSE to represent India in International Biology Olympiad 2022. This year the Indian team won 4 medals in total, 1 Gold and 3 Silver.

Based on their performance in the Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Biology (IOQB) Part II, Amritansh Nigam and Prachi Jindal were selected for IBO 2022, which was held at Yerevan, Armenia in offline mode from July 10th to 18th 2022. Both the students scored exceptionally well in the IOQB part II and directly became eligible to participate in IBO 2022.

The examination is organized by the Association of Teachers in Biological Sciences in association with the Indian Association of Physics Teachers and Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE). Each year over 30,000 students of 12th Standard or below, sit for this examination.

IOQB is intended for students of 12th standard, though 11th standard students are also allowed to appear for the examination. There is a designated state-wise quota according to which the students are selected for the next stage. Further, all students scoring greater than 80% of the average of the top ten scores at the national level (called Merit Index Score) get automatically selected irrespective of the state-wise quota. Usually, the top 1% of students from this examination are selected to sit for the Indian National Biology Olympiad.

Congratulating the students on the impressive results, Mr. Aakash Chaudhry, Managing Director, Aakash BYJU’S said: “We are very proud of Amritansh and Prachi who represented and brought honor to India at the global platform in Armenia for IBO 2022. We would also like to thank the parents for extending support. The credit goes to the hard work put in by our students and faculties as well as the quality test preparation imparted at the institute. I wish them all the best in their future endeavors.”
