Indian National Physics Olympiad


Indian National Physics Olympiad

The Indian National Physics Olympiad (INPhO for short) is an Olympiad in Physics held in India. It is part of the selection process for the International Physics Olympiad.

The theory part of the INPhO examination is held in end-January/beginning February of every year. It is conducted by the Indian Association of Physics Teachers. School students (usually of standards 11, 12) first need to qualify the National Standard Examination in Physics (NSEP) held in November of the preceding year. Among the 30,000+ students who sit for the NSEP, only the top 1% are selected for the INPhO.

About 55 students are selected from the written examination. Selected students have to then give a practical examination. A total of 30 students is selected from these to attend the International Physics Olympiad Training Camp (IPhOTC), held at HBCSE, Mumbai. The team for the International Physics Olympiad is selected based on a rigorous procedure of theory and practical examinations at the IPhOTC.

Most of the students qualifying the INPhO are those completing their twelfth standard. However, there have been some cases of students qualifying INPhO at the end of eleventh standard itself.

Admission

Qualification for IPhOTC assures students of direct entry into the B.Sc Physics programme at the Chennai Mathematical Institute.
