Marhguy has outperformed almost 150,000 pupils globally with his outstanding achievement, earning him both the gold medal and the title of 2023 overall national top scorer. In addition, he excelled over 38,000 test-takers to win the Silver Award in the Vanda Science International Olympiad.

His extraordinary achievement is evidence of his commitment and tenacity. It is critical to recognize Marhguy’s difficult journey, which was highlighted by a widely reported school admissions refusal that ignited a national conversation about discrimination.

Marhguy is a real inspiration to others because of his persistent perseverance and extraordinary abilities, which have allowed him to achieve tremendous heights despite all of the challenges he faced.
