Recognising Ramanujan 2019 was held on Sunday, 27th January with over 1400 students of Classes 6-9 from over 40 schools.
The competition was held at 8 centres spread across Delhi NCR allotted on the basis of proximity to registered schools.
The total duration of the MCQ paper was 60 minutes and was divided into two parts – Part 1 was based on Ramanujan’s life and Part 2 contained questions on his work with prime numbers. Part 1 had no negative marking, while Part 2 had negative marking, with maximum marks being 40.
We received an overwhelmingly positive response from students, teachers, principals and parents who were all excited to be a part of Ramanujan’s legacy in their own way. Some students reported at centres as early as 9 am, two full hours before the official start time, which shows the pure dedication, commitment and respect towards the great mathematician Ramanujan’s contribution to the field of mathematics.
