There were no selections from Mangalore for Olympiads earlier. In 2009, for the first time three students of Mangalore were selected (2 in mathematics and one in chemistry). In 2012 our student Sunil Simha (Astronomy), in 2014 our student Sumith (Physics & Chemistry), in 2017 our student Adithya (mathematics), and in 2018 four of our students (Aditya& Aneesh (mathematics), Shreyas (Biology), Prathyush (Astronomy) were among the only 35 students selected per subject in the country to reach the prestigious third stage and had an opportunity to undergo orientation cum selection camp at Homi Bhabha Centre for Science education, Mumbai.
In 2018 Prathyush Poduval of CFAL has won the silver medal in International Olympiad for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IOAA) held at Beijing China.
In 2017, our student Aditya Prakash was one among the six students who represented India in the International Math Olympiad held at Brazil.
These are great achievements of students from Mangalore.
National level exams like Olympiads and JEE help motivate students to strive for 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 national and international level is a matter of great joy.
