ICADian Anuj Apte bags gold medal at “Asian Pysics Olympiad (apho)”

Nagpur: For the FIRST TIME in HISTORY of Nagpur, ICADian Anuj Apte has bagged the GOLD MEDAL AT “ASIAN PHYSICS OLYMPIAD”, concluded recently at Hangzhou, China. Participants from 25 countries viz China, Russia, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Israel, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Macao, Mongolia, Nepal, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Turkmenistan, Vietnam & contested in this prestigious Olympiad.

Having qualified for IPHO and bronze medalist of APhO last year, ICADian Anuj Apte was considered the topmost Physics prodigy of India in a team of 8 representing india in APHO. In Asian Physics Olympiad, Chinese are considered tough intellectuals when we fight for Gold Medal.

ANUJ APTEAPhO stands for the Asian Physics Olympiad. It is currently the premier physics competition for pre-university students from Asian countries. It is modeled after the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO), and demands a similar level of intellectual capability from the participants.

The only difference between APhO and IPhO is that a national team for APhO is composed of eight students at the most, instead of five for IPhO. Selection process for APHO in short.

ICAD Founder, Sarang Upganlawar and Director Academics Dr. Dilip Vaidya, have congratulated Anuj for his outstanding achievement. Team ICAD wishes him all the best in forthcoming challenges and we are sure that he will excel.

From Nagpur, in last two years, only the ICADians have been privileged to represent our country at International level. ICADian Pranjal Warade has bagged the Bronze Medal at “European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad”, concluded recently at Minsk, Belarus. Last year Master Rupanshu Ganvir had bagged Silver Medal for India in International Physics Olympiad. It must be noted that Anuj has also won Bronze Medal last year in Asian Physics Olympiad.
