The Indian Association of Physics Teachers or IAPT is a body that coordinates the Physics Olympiad for India along with HBCSE.

IAPT[1] conducts the National Standard Examination in Physics[2] in November of each year throughout the country, with approximately 31,000 participants. The top 1% then sit for the Indian National Physics Olympiad, from where the top thirty students are selected for the International Physics Olympiad Training Camp, usually conducted at HBCSE. Here, the team for the International Physics Olympiad is selected, and the team, along with a Leader and Deputy Leader from the IAPT, go for the examination.

IAPT also helps conduct the National Standard Examination in Junior Science, National Standard Examination in Astronomy, National Standard Examination in Chemistry[3] and National Standard Examination in Biology and National Standard Examination in Junior Science. [3]

Young Genius Physics Tournament[edit]

In August 2013, the Rajasthan Chapter of IAPT (IAPT RC-6) launched the first global online physics competition, YGPT.[4] The aim of YGPT is to encourage students to utilize online resources to study physics. The competition will be held in 5 stages, the first 3 being online rounds and the final two rounds to be held in Jaipur, India. Each round will consist of a 'Physics Fight' in which the students will be given a conceptual physics video to watch and 7 days to prepare for the fight using online resources. After round 3, the top 100 students will be invited to Jaipur for two pen and paper rounds, eventually culminating in awarding of gold, silver and bronze medals to the winners.
