After winning 4 Gold Medals at the International Junior Science Olympiad, now ALLEN shines at the International Chemistry Olympiad too!
In the first round of the Olympiad which is held at national level namely National Standard Examination in Chemistry (NSEC), Dhyey Sankalp Gandhi from ALLEN has scored the maximum points. According to the Director Sh. Brijesh Maheshwari, more than 30 thousand students from across the country participated in this examination, in which only 373 students have been selected to appear in the second round. 54 students from these 373, belong to ALLEN Career Institute alone. Moreover, ALLEN’s classroom programme student Dhyey Sankalp Gandhi has scored the maximum points i.e. 213 who is still studying in class 10th. “Where, generally students from classes 11th and 12th participate in this examination, Dhyey bagging the top position, leaving the senior students behind, are a proud moment for the Institute” says Sh Maheshwari. This test includes the syllabus of organic, inorganic, physical and biochemistry of class 11th and 12th level.
Desire to pursue research
Despite of being just in Class 10th, Dhyey who has surpassed the students of 11th and 12th aspires to do research. In his own words, “I completed the syllabus of my 10th class beforehand following which I started focusing on Chemistry. With the help of extra studies, I prepared for competing against the senior classes. My goal is to study from MIT (USA) after completing my undergrad from IIT. Currently I am preparing for Chemistry Olympiad and I am sure to win a medal for my country. My family is my support system where my mother Mrs. Manisha Gandhi stays with me at Kota and my Father is is a businessman who is in Vadodara along with my grandparents.”
