Uzbek lyceum students have brought home one silver and two bronze medals fr om the Mendeleev International Chemistry Olympiad, the first in the list of international Olympiads wh ere Uzbek students participate.
A team of five students from Uzbekistan participated in the competition held in Moscow. The silver medal was won by Sarvar Shayunusov, a student at the lyceum of Tashkent Medical academy. The bronze medals were won by Charos Omonova and Jahongir Farkhriyev of the academic lyceums of Tashkent Medical Academy and Samarkand Medical Institute.
“The Mendeleev International Chemistry Olympiad has given our boys and girls the most awards. Therefore, I initially set myself the goal of winning a medal and I did it,” says Sarvar Shayunusov. “To achieve that, I didn’t just have to be a straight-A student, but also had to take additional lessons. It is the additional lessons in a lab and the library that gave me the skills and knowledge needed to solve practical lessons and answers to theory-related questions.”
Another five national teams are being trained under the guidance of the Center for Secondary Special and Professional Education for participation in international competitions for mathematics in Honking, for physics in Zurich, computer science in Kazan, for chemistry in Tbilisi and for biology in Hanoi. All of them are set to be held in July this year.
The national subject Olympiad for academic lyceum and professional college students has wrapped up as well. Thirty-nine of the 45 medals available have been won. This has led to a deep analysis of the quality of training process and measures to further improve it.
