Super Kids: Arjun Anand, 2-time Olympiad Winner!

Arjun Anand, student of class 4 in JSS Public School, Bangalore has just achieved a percentile score of 99.22 in the 5th International English Olympiad 2014-2015! He scored 37 on 40 while the class / state and international average ranged between 22 – 26. This is his second achievement after winning 1st place in the National Science Olympiad in November 2014.


ZenParent spoke to the proud mother, Vidya Ramamurthy who said all credit had to be given to Arjun and his teachers in school. To participate in these international Olympiads, the school needs to be affiliated with the Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF). The syllabus followed in Arjun’s school is CBSE.

So how did Arjun prepare?

“Arjun loves reading General Knowledge journals, encyclopaedias and Enid Blyton in his spare time. He also grasps the concepts taught in school quickly. That was pretty much his preparation!”, says Vidya. Well, his love for reading has definitely kept him in good stead! More information on the Olympiad Foundation and the suggested reading material can be found here.

This gifted boy also goes for classical music lessons as well as tennis lessons after school.

ZenParent wishes Arjun lots of success for his future endeavours as well!
