Alex Katergarakis, Grade 12 student participated in the first round of the Applications Olympiad (Open Category) on 10 May 2022. There were 4387 participants for Round 1. The top 10% of candidates (436 students) were then selected for the second round, and Alex Katergarakis made the cut. He participated in Round 2 and was one of the 15 finalists selected for the third round. Unfortunately he had to withdraw from Round 3 due to unforeseen circumstances. We are very proud of his achievement. Well done, Alex! The Applications Olympiad is a challenge promoted by IITPSA for students who take Computer Applications Technology (CAT). The participants have to solve a number of problems using Microsoft Office applications.
