Junior Science Olympiad: Preparation

The International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO) is a major international academical competition held annually and the only international academical competition that covers physics, chemistry and biology at the same time. For the competition, each country may only send a team of up to 6 students, 15 or younger, and 3 official team leaders. Bangladesh has recently received the membership of IJSO.

This article is for the future IJSO participants. 

IJSO Preparation

Book Suggestion

1. Biology by EP Solomon, LR Berg and DW Martin
2. General Chemistry by Ebbing
3. College Physics by Alan Giambattista, Betty McCarthy Richardson, and Robert C. Richardson
4. Physics by by John D. Cutnell, Kenneth W. Johnson


    Check out the solutions carefully.

   Check out each of the training manual carefully. This is extremely helpful.

How to win a Gold Medal at International Physics Olympiad (IPhO)?

What is required to be able to grasp the ideas of physics and solve problems so well that you could get a gold medal at IPhO? Do you need just to be gifted? Of course not, there are other students, who have solved a lot of problems – while you are thinking hard trying to "invent a bicycle", they are already writing the solution, because they had solved a similar problem earlier. Is it enough to solve a lot of problems and read a lot of problem solutions? Most often, no. Just solving or reading solutions, of course, will increase your technical skills, but you also need to think over, what were the main ideas which made it possible to solve the problem, and take these ideas into your permanent arsenal; if you solve too many problems, you don't have time to think over. Is it possible to learn "the art of problem solving" and if yes then how? Well, 99% of the Olympiad problems are solved using a rather limited set of ideas (for mathematics, that set is somewhat larger). So, if you acquire those ideas well enough – so that you can recognize them even if they are carefully hidden – then the IPhO gold will be yours! Do not worry, no-one expects you to discover a solving technique which has been never seen before, because that would be an achievement worth of a Nobel Prize!

International Science Olympiads

The International Science Olympiads are a group of worldwide annual competitions in various areas of science. The competitions are designed for the 4-6 best high school students from each participating country selected through internal National Science Olympiads. To date there are 12 such ISOs:

The Olympiads themselves are separate competitions each with its own organizing body, even though they are loosely grouped together as "ISOs". The aims of each ISO are to promote a career in science; to challenge the brightest students from around the world; and to compare the various teaching systems of each country.

Although the competitions are aimed for secondary school pupils, the standards of the exams are extremely high. In fact, in several countries, achieving a high ranking in any ISO guarantees access to a university of choice and a fellowship.

World Physics Olympiad (WoPhO)

World Physics Olympiad – Beat the Champion, a secondary school level individual physics competition, started in 2011. It is a unique competition.

This competition lasts for a full year in three rounds:

1. Selection round

2. Discussion round

3. Final round

Each round has its respective mission, i.e.:

1.      Selection round:  provides an opportunity for as many students as possible to participate in this physics competition based on internet technology.  Problems presented in the selection round will encourage students to study high-level physics.  Indirectly, the students will enhance their knowledge on physics. 

-> This round will run from February 1st to July 31st of each year. 
-> Participants solve the problems and submit the solutions via the internet.
-> Students not yet at university level by June 30th of the competition year.
-> Students under 20 years old by June 30th of the competition year.

6th IOAA - Observational Round

International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics (IOAA) consists of three rounds. Theory, Data Analysis and Observation. The Observational round is pretty awesome. Here I'm going to share the experience of observational round of 6th IOAA. 
The exam took place at Vassouras, Rio De Janeiro. The hotel where we were staying was surrounded by mountains. It was 9th August eve. Around 6 PM, all the lights of the hotel were turned off for the observational round. The place was really dark with a magnificent sky, all you can see is the bright constellations marked in the sky. 
6th IOAA Observational Round
The organization divided us into groups and started to take us for the exam. The guide who was leading our group, was showing us the route with a red torch light. I could hardly identify who was beside me, darkness everywhere. 
Where the exam took place, many telescopes were set over there. I was given the exam paper and a red torch light. With that red torch I could barely see my exam paper. At that moment I had the feeling that I'm the only guy here, under the most beautiful and clear sky I've ever watched. The exam went well. Finally after staying for 2 hours in the dark, our group was taken to a hall room (Of course that place was full of light! The moment was great, you'd enjoy the facial expressions of everyone. I mean, after staying for hours in the dark, when you see the light, you give an amazing expression! ) where we had to wait until all the groups are done with their exam. 
Someone started to play, some danced, some ate a lot, some just slept. Finally after done with a 6 hours-long observational exam we were taken back to the hotel at midnight. It was the most amazing exam of my life!
