For the first time, Nepal has participated in the Olympiad competition in the international arena. After that, Nepal has been participating in about a dozen international Olympiads through mathematics, astronomy, biology and chemistry.
In the past, only science subjects were used for participation, but now Nepal is participating in other subjects as well. The Olympiad in Mathematics was started from Romania in 1959, but Nepal showed its presence in the international arena only in Physics in 2006. It is certain that Nepal will participate in the entire International Olympiad by 2020, said VC.
Four to six people will be able to participate in the International Olympiad thematically for which a national competition is mandatory.
