Global Bonding through Physics
International Physics Competition – PhysiCo is an Olympiad style competition intended for interested secondary and high school students. It aims to provide a unique competitive platform to identify and reward young talents. The emphasis of PhysiCo questions is mostly on critical thinking and application of basic concepts to problem solving, rather than depth of knowledge alone. Hence, a student who is doing well in science should be able to solve at least half of the problems without special training. All participants are provided with individualized and detailed assessment reports to support their targeted learning. As a result, it helps a teacher to evaluate student’s understanding of the science topics, mastery of knowledge and power of reasoning.
- To provide talented students with a unique platform, where they can compete globally.
- To provide individualized comprehensive assessment of the theoretical knowledge, its application and analytical skills.
- To recognize and reward best students and cultivate academic excellence in science.
PhysiCo is open to any secondary and high school student. All students take the same exam. However, students compete and get assessed in two separate categories.
- Junior category: Grade 8, 9 and 10
- Senior category: Grade 11 and 12
USD 15 per student
PhysiCo is a 90-minute online competition, comprised of 40 multiple-choice questions. Students are NOT penalized for wrong answers.
The questions only require knowledge of general secondary school physics syllabus. Core concepts tested are
