This olympiad has helped me a lot in many ways. Olympiads like these should be conducted more frequently like these should be conducted more frequently as they are very interesting and they also urge us to think about different things. Confidence levels are also effected. This olympiad has also helped me realise what competitive exams are like. Also the examiners were very patient and they advised us so that we would do better which was very encouraging and helpful. I hope there are more such olympiads. Overall a great experience.
