Yes, I suppose that explains the numbers.

Ah, thanks.

So a single stage to select 300 out of 3 to 5 lakhs. Just 1 out of 1000 or 1700 gets ahead.

How did you fare at the Olympiad?
Um yes that's it. I appeared for Physics, Chemistry and Biology olympiads but qualified only for Biology (although I was confident that I'd get through chemistry as well). The next level in on the 3rd of February.

Also in India Physics Olympiad is just a joke, just an Exam. because no one going to take Undergraduate in Physics.

You may not know it but some people don't just view physics as a ladder for a better life and to do engineering in foreign universities. To some Physics is something more. Even in India.

Too late for you. The olympiads are intended for children who are still in high school.

IŽll again present a comparison from my country.

In this spring, the total number of 12th year graduates in my country is about 12 000.
The total number of vacancies in the physics departments, between 3 universities, is 120.

Based on the local physics olympiads held in January, the national jury invited 120 students to the national competition.

Of these 120, 11 did not show up. In my country, there were 2 different exams, held at the same time. One for high school, one for junior high (intended as years 8 and 9). It was possible for junior high students to opt to sit the high school exams. 2 of them did so, thus there were 59 participants in high school exam, and 50 in the junior high exam.

The number of participants by year was:
29 in year 12
13 in year 11
15 in year 10
the 2 junior high students (one from year 9 and the other from 8) who competed in high school exam both fared ahead of whole year 10
32 in year 9
17 in year 8
1 year 7 student on junior high exam, got place 8 from 18 8th year students

Based on the results, the candidates for the international olympiad were selected - 1 place given for certain, and 21 candidates for the other 4 places, to be decided by extra exam after a training camp.

The certain representative was 12th year (and won the whole high school).
The 21 candidates were:
11 from year 12
4 from year 11
3 from year 10
1 year 9 competing in high school
1 year 8 competing in high school
1 year 9 competing in junior high (the junior high winner)

So... over the whole India, just 35 students get invited to extra training?

Yes unfotunately-

Most of those selected are rankers in IITJEE proving that performers in physics can perform in chemistry and mathematics also!. India team is quite strong some students win gold medals also.
