Finalround of Math and Physics ViOlympic to take place on April 15

The final round of the 2017-2018 ViOlympic, an online math and physics competition, will take place on April 15, 2018. Nearly 15,000 pupils from 50 provinces nationwide have entered the final round. This is the tenth year that the ViOlympic has been launched.

The final round of Math ViOlympic (Vietnamese version) is for learners in Grade 5, Grade 9, and 12; Math ViOlympic (English version) is for learners in Grade 4 and Grade 8; Physics ViOlympic is in Grade 9 and Grade 12.

According to the ViOlympic Center (under FPT Corporation), one of the changes in this year’s final round is the form of continuous questions. 

In particular, the final round lasting 60 minutes includes 3 same parts as free rounds and 1 special part where questions will appear without limit. When answering correctly, contestants receive 10 points per question. However, if they are wrong in 5 questions, the round will automatically stop. This helps to assess candidates’ ability and then categorize them precisely.

FPT signed the strategic cooperation agreement with the Vietnam Institute of Educational Sciences (under the Ministry of Education and Training) to study and adjust the content of the ViOlympic since the academic year of 2017-2018 in order to encourage student participation; they will also focus on adding applied math problems and puzzles for thinking development.

They will develop other online learning and educational products in the future.

In the near future, FPT will perfect a mobile version of ViOlympic and chatbot service – robot answering frequently asked questions.
