DAGUPAN CITY—Robin Christopher Yu, 15, was nervous when he sat down in front of a computer as one of the finalists in the two-day National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI) held at University of Pangasinan here that started on May 12.

Yu, an incoming Grade 11 student at Xavier School in San Juan City, Metro Manila, was competing with 11 other students from Philippine Science High School, Ateneo de Manila High School and other schools.

“The problems were very difficult, but then I was able to push through to solve them and it was enjoyable as a contest,” Yu said.

On Wednesday, Yu topped the competition and earned one of the four slots in the Philippine team to the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), which will be held in Almaty, Kazakhstan, from July 26 to Aug. 2.
