Pranjal Srivastava of Grade 12 wins his 3rd Gold at IMO 2022

This is INCREDULOUS! This is PHENOMENAL in its most pristine form, a STUNNER indeed…

Our Maths wizard PRANJAL SRIVASTAVA has bowled us over yet again, by creating history yet again, by bringing unprecedented honour to his school NPS Koramangala and to our country yet again.

Pranjal Srivastava of Grade 12 has won his 3rd Gold at IMO 2022, conducted in Oslo, Norway. With his name radiant on the ‘IMO – Hall of Fame’, it is notable that in the 63 years of history of IMO, only 11 contestants from around the world have received more medals than Pranjal.

We can’t express our joy, our jubilation enough… probably we need a new language…

Udhyam Shiksha’s Online Entrepreneurship Program (OEP)

The Entrepreneurship students of the present Grade 12 (2022-23) participated in Udhyam Shiksha’s Online Entrepreneurship Program (OEP) organised by CBSE, from January 2022 to March 2022 (the participants were students of Grade 11 then). OEP’s practical, real-world activities gave students experiential exposure and introduced them to the basics of developing a customer-centric business offering.

The students brainstormed in groups, prepared a presentation with their unique business idea and pitched it to the mentors.

Ashika D Ram, Shivani Kharosekar, Naina Menon pitched the Business idea - Thrive and Abhishek Noronha, Vaishnavi Bhaskar, Ayodhika Basu pitched the idea – Vichar.

40 schools across India participated in the program with more than 700 students registering for it. More than 300 unique and innovative business ideas were submitted and 100 most inspiring ones were selected and compiled in this booklet.

Pranjal Srivastava wins Gold in the International Mathematics Olympiad

Pranjal does it again!

Just as we were feeling happy with the news of India’s best ever first day performance at Olympics in Tokyo, we received news from another world class event that has us all elated.

In a truly historic and glorious moment for India and his school, NPS Koramangala, Pranjal Srivastava has won a gold medal at the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) 2021 held in St Petersburg, Russia from 14th to 24th July 2021.

The prestigious International Mathematical Olympiad 2021 saw 619 participants from 107 countries, with each of the countries sending their best teenage mathematicians.

Due to the pandemic, the participation was remote, but with a well organised and strict invigilation involving many IMO commissioners and elaborate camera-based monitoring the participants battling the challenge of an exceedingly difficult set of questions.

Achieving a gold in IMO is a lifetime goal for mathematics enthusiasts worldwide. And not without reason - to get a gold medal, not only does one have to be the best amongst the participants but also has to score above a designated threshold.

India team’s over-all performance at IMO 2021 was quite commendable, with one gold, one silver and two bronze medals.

Pranjal began his winning streak in 2018 when he secured a silver medal in IMO 2018 and a gold in IMO 2019. Now, with two golds and a silver, Pranjal has become the most decorated medal winner at IMO from India, overtaking a decade-old record of one gold and two silvers.

This math wizard’s achievement at IMO comes after a record-setting full-mark performance at the national level Olympiad (INMO 2021)

Besides this superlative accomplishment, Pranjal has also achieved a rare feat of representing the country, in the same year, in the two largest Olympiads- IMO 2021 and IOI 2021- and winning medals in both. The International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) is one of several prestigious annual International Science Olympiads. Pranjal has won a bronze in IOI 2021.

Hearty congratulations to Pranjal and his parents on his exemplary success and good wishes for him to keep scripting many more tales of triumph.
