Thirty Juniors will participate in the second round of NAO2021!
After the careful evaluation of all the documents including the online test that we held on June 26, 2021 across the country, we have selected 30 students to join us for the second round. The second round is also known as pre-closed camp where students get an opportunity to explore their writing, exploring and instrumentation skills.
Congratulations to all the students selected for the second round. Selected students will receive several assignments this month as a part of pre-closed camp which they need to submit to our office virtually or physically depending upon the type of the assignments. As we are pacing COVID-19 pandemic, the nature of the assignments may vary in order to help students to avoid contacts with people outside their home hence infection! Stay home, stay safe!
