Indian Young Physicists’ Tournament

About Us

The Indian Young Physicists’ Tournament is India’s selection round to the annual premier physics competition for high schoolers, the International Young Physicists’ Tournament. This competition runs from August of the previous year (when the International Young Physicists’ Tournament releases the problems) until the IYPT takes place the next year. The competition is highly selective till the final round, where 5 students are selected to represent India.


The goal of the competition is for students to be able to engage in true physics research and face peer-review, much like in the real scientific world. The competition does not focus on a pen-and-paper test, but instead on real research carried out by students.

The competition is hosted by Mr Shashikant Pandey, IOC and head of Physics at Bombay Scottish School, Mahim.
