Aysylu Garayeva was invited as a jury member of the All-Russian Olympiad for school students
The regional stage of the All-Russian Olympiad for school students in 8-11 grades took place on 1-3 February.
Aysylu Garayeva, a first-year master's student of “Socioeconomic and Political Development of Modern Asia”
programme, was invited as a jury member to the Republic of Tatarstan to participate into The regional stage of the All-Russian Olympiad for school students in 8-11 grades. In this article, she shares her experiences.
What is your educational background?
I received my Bachelor's degree from Kazan Federal University (hereinafter KFU). During my studies, I paid special attention to scientific activities: various events, language internship in the Republic of Korea (hereinafter ROK) and many other things. As a result, in the 4th year of my bachelor's degree I was honoured to become a scholarship holder of the Ministry of Education of the ROK.
How often do you participate in these kinds of events?
Despite my great experience in holding scientific conferences, seminars and lectures during my studies at KFU, this was the first time I had been invited to be a member of the jury of the Olympiad.
How did the Olympiad go?
It was quite a tough competition between students. At the regional stage, more than 200 school students in 8-11 high school grades of comprehensive schools from municipal districts and cities of the Republic of Tatarstan took part. The children had a variety of knowledge, so it was quite a difficult task to assess them. At the same time, we would like to underline the complexity of the tasks given to the students this year. Despite this, we as a jury did our best to find out the brightest talents.
This event was an unforgettable experience for me, which I would like to continue in the near future.
