It is that time of the year again for the National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI), modelled after the International Olympiad in Informatics, the reknowned international competition in competitive computing. Emphasising creativity in problem-solving, as well as programming skills and expertise, this is an opportunity for students aged 13-18 to showcase their programming capabilities to their entire country.

The NOI competition consists of two rounds – the Online Qualification Contest and the Final Contest. Any number of students from each school can participate in the Online Qualification contest. Of the many students who participated, only the top 5 students from each school, at each level, are shortlisted for the Final contest and awarded medals.

After the two intensive rounds were finally completed on 18th March 2023, we are proud to announce that 10 of our students have obtained medals in the 26th NOI 2023!

Presenting to you Coding Lab’s 26th NOI Qualification Contest medallists:

Ziv Lim Zhengheng Silver Medallist
Aanya Kaur Agrawal Silver Medallist (previously a Bronze Medallist)
Caleb Chia Silver Medallist (previously a Two-time Bronze Medallist)
Vayun Mathur Four-Time Silver Medallist
Derrick Lukimin Silver Medallist
James Pearman Silver Medallist (previously a Bronze Medallist)
Bobby Lee Bronze Medallist
Jaehyuk Cho Bronze Medallist
Wongtreenatrkoon Jirapas Bronze Medallist
Zhang Yanjia Two-time Bronze Medallist

Special mention to Ziv Lim Zhengheng, who clinched the Silver Award in his very first NOI! This bright young coder has been attending classes with us since he was 9 and was also part of the Champion team for the National IMDA CodeXtremeApps (CXA) 2019 Hackathon. Other students who received a medal in their first NOI are Bobby Lee, Jaehyuk Cho and Wongtreenatrkoon Jirapas

It is always great to see our students show improvement! We would like to commend Aanya Kaur Agrawal and Caleb Chia on achieving their first Silver Medals, a step up from their Bronze Medals in 2022!

We would also like to congratulate Vayun Mathur on his fourth Silver Medal! He was one of our students who was featured on Google and the international news network CGTN before.

Congratulations and a big round of applause to all of our students! Their outstanding coding abilities in our classes got them selected for our intensive NOI Preparation Course (By Invite Only) – Like Ziv, many of them started with us early, whilst still in Primary school. Kudos to all of our students for their hard work!

Whilst we celebrate our students’ success in this area, we recognise that competitive programming is not all there is to programming. Many of our students have achieved success in other areas; whether it’s creating a Stock Rating Algorithm, a Real-Time Carpark Tracker, a prize-winning app or attaining an overseas scholarship to read Computer Science at University, we’re here to support our students every step of the way.

Interested to find out more? Check out our proprietary Python Meets Math course, which incorporates O and A-Level Mathematics for ages 13 to 18 to pick up one of the most versatile programming languages. We also have Advanced Elective courses, which includes Data Analytics, Algorithm, Game Development, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Secondary school and Junior College students.
