And the winner team of team round earned 450 thousand drams, runner-up � 300 thousand drams, 3rd place holder � 150 thousand drams.
We will note also that in the International Olympiad which was held in the end of November in Batumi, no Armenian team overcame the semi-final round. Three teams were presented in Batumi by YSU and RAU. One command was given also by the State engineering university of Armenia. From the 11 problems YSU second team had solved only 5. Only the team of Georgia had progressed into finals.
We face the experience lack and at the same time we can not work in a high temp. I think we will prepare better for the coming Olympiad next year, - YSU team member Karapet Kostandyan said.
