Congratulations to all successful participants. We wish them good luck for the final round which will take place on 24. – 25. March at ‘Neue Kantonsschule’ in Aarau. A good performance at the final round will allow you to represent Switzerland at the European Physics Olympiad 2018 in Moscow or even at the International Physics Olympiad 2018 in Lisbon.

We would also like to thank everyone, who didn’t make it to the final round, for participating. Hopefully, many of them will try again next year.
