Shreyas Adiga, a student of the Centre for Advanced Learning (CFAL’s PU College), has received an honourable mention for being selected among the top ten Indian students to represent the country at the Asian Pacific Mathematical Olympiad (APMO), 2022. India has been ranked sixth globally in the said Olympiad.
Addressing the media at the Press Club, Vijay Moras, Managing Director – CFAL said, “Shreyas is the only student from Mangalore out of ten students selected in the Indian team. APMO was held in the country on March 15, 2022. The top ten ranked papers were sent to APMO to compete with more than 350 students from nearly 35 countries.” The Asian Pacific Mathematics Olympiad is designed to discover, encourage and challenge mathematically gifted high school students under the age of 20 and to foster friendly international relations and cooperation between students/teachers throughout the region.
Shreyas Adiga is the son of Dr Usha Adiga & Dr Sachidananda Adiga, both professors at K.S. Hegde Medical Academy. Passionate about Mathematics, his teachers at CFAL have mentored him over the years to solve complex mathematical puzzles and have helped him develop a deep love for the subject. When he was a High school student at Sharada Vidyalaya, he was immensely supported by his school teachers.
Shreyas, a PU student at CFAL, has already got admissions into his dream institute – Chennai Mathematical Institute (CMI), a premier institute for mathematical sciences in the country. Shreyas has secured AIR 603 in the SA category of KVPY 2020-21. He has qualified for XV Russian Sharygin Geometry Olympiad Finale. He had qualified for the Online Mathematical Olympiad Orientation Camp by clearing the INMO exam in 2021. He has also cleared the INMO exam 2022. He had also been selected for the final stage of NTSE in 2020.
It may be recalled that in 2018, CFAL student Prathyush Poduval was one of the top 5 students to represent India at the International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics
(IOAA). In 2017, CFAL student Aditya Prakash was one of the top six students representing India in the International Math Olympiad held in Brazil. National level exams like Olympiads, KVPY and JEE Advanced, motivate students to strive for a better and deeper understanding of scientific facts and data. It helps them to enhance their reasoning, analytical and problem-solving skills. Above all, participating in Olympiad exams and representing one’s state or country at the national and international level is a matter of great joy and pride.
CFAL promotes original thinking among students. In the recently declared NTSE results, Four CFAL students were selected for the scholarship. In the JEE-Main 2021, more than 20 toppers from the district were CFAL students.
