NUS High School Attains Best Performance So Far in the Asia-Pacific Informatics Olympiad 2015

The Asia-Pacific Informatics Olympiad (APIO) is a competition for South Asian and Western Pacific countries, with each country represented by up to 6 delegations. Held online, the contest lasted for 5 hours, and competitors were expected to be competent in programming and had to solve three problems that were designed to be algorithmic in nature. This year, the competition was held on 9 May 2015 and was hosted by Indonesia. The APIO is one of the competitions by which students are chosen to represent Singapore in the International Olympiad in Informatics.

Our students have done the school and country proud by clinching 4 medals - 1 Silver and 3 Bronze.
