INpho stands for the Indian National Physics Olympiad (INPhO) that is conducted annually by the Indian Association Of Physics Teachers (IAPT) usually in June and July every year. It is conducted especially for the students of secondary school to enhance their knowledge in the field of Physics internationally.
The success and the positive experience of the International Mathematics Olympiads in 1959 gave way to the introduction of physics by Prof. Czeslaw Scilowski in Warsaw (Poland) in 1967. The IPhO is a contest examination that serves as a benchmark for the study of physics for the pre-university students fostering friendly relations among them from around the countries in the world. The main motive behind the examination of INpho is to boosts the level of physics education among the students of the country and train them for IPho.
INpho Exam Pattern
The syllabus for INPhO is set roughly according to the school syllabus of classes 9 and 10 CBSE board. However, the syllabus for the National Physics Olympiad is much difficult and non-conventional as compared to the questions that come for the higher secondary school students which are just a broad guideline. Considering this situation, the syllabus of IPhO should be considered the same for INPhO.
