The students have been selected by HBCSE to represent India in International Biology Olympiad 2022 and International Chemistry Olympiad 2022 respectively.
Based on his performance in the Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Biology (IOQB) Part II, Amritansh Nigam has been selected for IOB 2022, which will be held at Yerevan, Armenia from July 10 to 18, 2022. He became eligible to directly participate in IBO 2022 by scoring 244/298.5 in IOQB part II.

The examination is administered by the Association of Teachers in Biological Sciences in association with Indian Association of Physics Teachers and Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE). Each year, over 30,000 students of class 12 or below, write this examination.
IOQB is intended for students of class 12 though class 11 students are also allowed to write the examination. There is a designated statewise quota according to which the students are selected for the next stage. Further, all students scoring more than 80 percent of the average of the top ten scores at national level (called as Merit Index Score), are automatically selected irrespective of the statewise quota. Usually, top one percent students are shortlisted for the Indian National Biology Olympiad.
Congratulating the students on the impressive results, Aakash Chaudhry, managing director, Aakash+BYJU’S said, “We are very proud of Tanishka and Amritansh who are representing India at global platform in Armenia and China for IBO 2022 and IChO 2022. We would also like to thank the parents for extending support. The credit goes to the hard work put in by our students and faculties as well as the quality test preparation imparted at the institute. I wish them all the best for the next round.”
On the basis of performance in IOQB, the top students in the merit list are selected for Stage III Orientation Camp (OC) in biology. The student undergoes numerous theoretical and experimental sessions. The selected member Indian team undergoes a rigorous training programme at HBCSE in theory and experiments. Special laboratories have been developed at HBCSE for the purpose of experimental training. Resource persons from HBCSE and different institutions across the country train the students.
The Olympiad programme culminates with the participation of the Indian students (4-6 in each subject) in the International Olympiads.
