Like their sports counterpart, an academic Olympiad is organized to encourage the youngsters in various subjects such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Junior Science and Astronomy. Most of these Olympiads aim to spot and recognize extraordinary talent in the subject in pre-University students and hopefully, groom them better for future achievements. In India, Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) has taken up the responsibility of conducting National Olympiad in different subjects along with other associations and organizations.
Participating in an olympiad at national and international level is considered a great academic accomplishment and is considered valuable worldwide. The winners of national Olympiads get a chance to represent India in international Olympiads, various scholarships as well as several other opportunities to study, research and train themselves for a bright future in an area related to their subject.
It is an honour for an individual as well as the country to win the international Olympiads.
