Pakistani student bags bronze medal in international chemistry competition
For perspective, I know a little about Pakistan's math olympiad team.. They are taking part since 2005, most (90+ of the participants) get ZERO. In 2016 for example TOTAL team score (all 6 combined was ) 18!!! which (average score 3 - half got zero)..
For comparison .. EVERY indian student got more than 18!!! while Pak got Zero medals, India got something like 5 medals including one silver.
(Americans, routinely get close to 6 gold almost every year)
In all those years, there was just one student, (IIRC he got bronze or HM some time in the past) who got double digit score.
(Worse is Paki math team's ethics..those guys even cheat even in practice tests while some international coaches tried to help their team -- whole Pak does not have a single good math coach and in past other countries tried to help them)
BTW the math olympiad is going on right now as I mentioned in math dhaga.For those who are unfamiliar:- Any participant which is able to do one problem (out of 6) correctly gets HM award.
- About 50% students get Bronze/Silver/Gold Medal.
- The Gold/Silver/Bronze are awarded in the ratio of 1:2:3 .. as the numbers go.
So if there are 120 students taking part, 10 will get gold, 20 Silver, 30 Bronze.
