Every year, selected students are eligible to attend a four-week
Orientation cum Selection Camp (OCSC) at Homi Bhabha Centre for Science
Education and Research (HBCSE) in Mumbai. This is where the final
international team is selected, and six students are chosen to represent India
at the International Olympiads.

Muralidhar’s remarkable achievement has placed him in a position to
choose any one out of the two Selection camps. He has opted to attend the
International Mathematical Olympiad Training Camp (IMOTC), which will
take place at the HBCSE in Mumbai probably from April to May 2023.

Muralidhar has shown exceptional skills in mathematics, astronomy,
and biology by scoring excellent points in these Olympiads. He scored 34
points out of 102 in the Indian National Mathematics Olympiad (INMO), where
the cut-off was 26 points. In the Indian National Astronomy Olympiad (INAO),
he scored 76 out of 100 points, where the cut-off was 57.5 points.

The International Olympiads in Physics, Chemistry, Biology,
Mathematics, Astronomy, and Junior Science take place every year in
June/July. The hosting country for these Olympiads varies from year to year.
The 64th International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO 2023) will be held in
Chiba, Japan, this year.

We are delighted to share that CFAL students have showcased their
exceptional talents in various science Olympiads at both the national and
state levels. Muralidhar Rao M has earned a coveted place in the national top
1% of the Indian National Biology Olympiad (INBO), demonstrating his
outstanding understanding and problem-solving abilities in the subject.

Ketan Suman has also made CFAL proud by securing a place in the
national top 1% of the Indian National Chemistry Olympiad (INChO), four
CFAL students, namely Ketan Suman, Muralidhar Rao M, Samanth Martis,
and Shashank M N, have earned their place in the state top 1% for the Indian
National Physics Olympiad (INPhO). Krish V Shanbhag has also secured a
place in the state top 1% for INBO, showcasing his exceptional understanding
and knowledge of Biology.

Three students from our esteemed institution have achieved a
significant accomplishment by clearing the Indian Olympiad Qualifier in
Mathematics (IOQM). Ramesh D, Athmeeya Kashyap, and Niyam Shyam are
the names of these bright students.

We also want to emphasize that participating in Olympiads can have a positive
impact on a student’s performance in other competitive exams such as NTSE,
JEE, NEET, and KVPY. So, this achievement by these students is not only
remarkable but also a promising sign for their future academic endeavours.

Mr. Vijay Moras, Director of CFAL said “These achievements are an
affirmation to CFAL’s focus on encouraging original thinking and nurturing
problem-solving abilities among students. By providing students with a strong
foundation and rigorous training in Science, Technology, Engineering, and
Mathematics (STEM), CFAL has enabled them to achieve great success in
challenging academic competitions”.

CFAL has a proven track record of producing exceptional students in
various fields of study. In recent years, CFAL students have achieved
remarkable success in national and international competitions.

CFAL is an educational institution that prioritizes original thinking and
encourages students to develop their critical thinking and problem-solving
skills. In the recent JEE-Main 2023 examination, more than 20 district
toppers were CFAL students. This remarkable achievement is a testament to
the institute’s dedication to providing quality education to its students.

CFAL in collaboration with the Zilla Panchayat has started Pragathi
