News Desk, News Nation 360 : In an impressive result, students from Aakash Institute, the national leader in test preparatory services, have topped the prestigious Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Biology (IOQB) Exam. Five Aakashians have secured ranks in the Top 10 (AIR 1, 2, 6, 8, and 10) at IOQB which is the second stage exam of the Indian National Level Science Olympiad. The examination is organized by the Association of Teachers in Biological Sciences in association with the Indian Association of Physics Teachers and Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE). Each year over 30,000 students of 12th Standard or below, sit for this examination. IOQB is intended for students of 12th standard, though 11th standard students are also allowed to give the examination. There is a designated state-wise quota according to which the students are selected for the next stage. Further, all students scoring greater than 80% of the average of the top ten scores at the national level (called Merit Index Score) get automatically selected irrespective of the state-wise quota. Usually, the top 1% of students from this examination are selected to sit for the Indian National Biology Olympiad. Aakashians who have secured top ranks are Dhiren Bhardwaj AIR 1, Anshul AIR 2, Sahil AIR 6, Darsh Kaustubh AIR 8, and Divyansh Soni AIR 10. Dhiren and Anshul will be representing India at the International Biology Olympiad (IBO) to be held between July 24-28, 2021. A total of 19 students from Aakash Institute have cleared part 2 of the exam.
