The third place was shared by the students of the physics School of Tbilisi, the Lyceum of the Belarusian State University and the physics School of Tyumen. The Grand Prix in the category "Best Olympic school" was awarded to pupils from the mathematical gymnasium in Belgrade, Serbia.
In the future Fizmat Almaty aims to expand the geography of participants, thereby increasing the level of development and competitiveness education among students. The uniqueness of this Olympiad is that it is held in three subjects at once among specialized schools of physics and mathematics.

Thanks to the status of the event-international, bilateral cooperation between schools from all over the world is developing, experience is exchanged in the field of education, in the organization and conduct of Olympiads, and interest in physical and mathematical Sciences among young people is increasing.
This year, it should be noted the Head of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Aisen Sergeyevich Nikolayev. In his official page on social networks, he said that the departure of the Yakutia team to the Zhautykov Olympics was carried out at the expense of the canceled holiday Banquet for leaders and deputies. This action is worthy of respect, and we are pleased with the fact that today education and the future of young people are a priority! And we sincerely congratulate the team from Yakutia - the guys performed well, and took prestigious prizes, receiving 4 bronze medals in physics and computer science.
Within the framework of the Zhautyk Olympiad, not only students competed, but also teachers of schools within the IMPACT Olympiad 2020 (International Math, Physics, and Computer science Teachers and Trainers Olympiad). Command first place in this competition was shared between teachers from Metropolitan RPMS and Almaty NIS FMN. Such events greatly raise the quality of education, and we hope that our work will be justified by the victories and achievements of our children!
