Of the 396 students who participated from across the world, 42 won gold medals after a two-stage competition. The IPhO competition consists of a theoretical and an experimental examination, each of five-hour duration. This year, the theoretical examination had questions based on LIGO detection of gravitational waves, the ATLAS instrument at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the physics of blood flow in living tissues and growth of tumours. Out of all the participants, the top 8% who scored the highest are awarded gold medals.
