For a 9th-grade student from School No.12 of Chelyabinsk, Maksim Shamshurin, this is not the first time of participating in the Olympiad. Two years ago, Maksim got a second-degree certificate in Social Sciences. This time, he also got a second-degree certificate, but in the sphere of Jurisprudence.
“To me, this is an interesting and unusual sphere of knowledge, so I wanted to try myself. Moreover, I have friends at SUSU who study to become lawyers. Having talked to them, I wanted to test my knowledge in the sphere of jurisprudence and maybe also get enrolled to the Institute of Law. I loved the assignments and I would like to say thanks to the people who made them. Completing them was a great pleasure.”
Student of School No.104, Veronika Zakharova, took part in Zvezda Multi-Profile Engineering Olympiad in the category of Social Sciences. On the main stage of SUSU, she was handed a third-degree certificate.
“It wasn’t difficult for me to complete assignments of the Olympiad because I know social sciences well. I would like to get enrolled to the Institute of Architecture and Construction at SUSU and become an architect. I will surely take part in the Olympiad next year!”
