The Nigerian Tulip International Colleges (NTIC) schools have exhibited excellence in the just concluded 2022/2023 first round of National Mathematics and Sciences Olympiads by winning a record of 80 gold, silver, and bronze medals in five states of the federation.
This achievement places NTIC as the school with the highest number of medals won in the first round of this competition from Lagos, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Kaduna, Kano, and Yobe states.
According to the analysis of the results released by the National Mathematical Centre – Abuja, NTIC schools are the best in mathematics in Lagos, FCT, Kaduna, Kano, and Yobe states.
They also broke a record of having the highest number of participants/number of students to qualify for the second round of the competition totaling 202 students.
A total of 19 NTIC Abuja students qualified for the 2nd round and 8 of them were awarded 2 gold medals, 3 silver medals, and 3 bronze medals.
Okafor Izuchukwu God’swill (Senior Mathematics Olympiad – SSS3) and Okwe ThankGod Ukpata (Junior Mathematics Olympiad – JSS2) won gold medals; Ezebube Chukwunwike (Junior Mathematics Olympiad – JSS 3), Salihu Abubakar Bakari (Biology Olympiad – JSS3) and Sochima Chukwudi (Senior Mathematics Olympiad – SSS3) won silver medals and Amina Garba Ladan (Biology Olympiad – SSS1), Chukwuanukwu Kachisikwu Patrick (Physics Olympiad – SSS3) and Isioma Marvelous Iduh (Junior Mathematics Olympiad – JSS 1) won bronze medals.
The analysis showed that the outstanding achievements by NTIC Abuja students in this competition are one of the JSS3 students, Salihu Abubakar Bakari clinching the second best in Senior Biology Olympiads in the FCT and having the highest number of students to qualify for the second round of Junior Mathematics Olympiad in the whole of Abuja FCT,10 out of the 23 students that qualified.
Also, having one of the youngest students – Luis Lu (JSS1) who qualified for second rounds of both Junior Mathematics and Informatics Olympiads in the FCT from his first experience and one of its youngest students – Isioma Marvelous Iduh (JSS1) who clinched the third best student in Junior Mathematics Olympiads in the FCT from his first experience are some of the outstanding achievements.”
NTIC Abuja schools also clinched the awards of Best Schools in Senior Mathematics and Junior Mathematics in the whole of FCT.
The school expressed confidence that its students would be representing Nigeria in the upcoming prestigious International Biology, Chemistry, Informatics, Mathematics, and Physics Olympiads.
