Search is ON to hand-pick 06 best performing students across the country to do India proud at the 2012 Worldwide Competition on Microsoft Office in August 2012 in Las Vegas, USA.

New Delhi, India – May 26th, 2012

CyberLearning, the official test delivery solution provider for Microsoft Office Specialist Certification Exams for India, Certiport Inc.- the global administrator of this Certification, and Microsoft® Learning are quite enthused by the response to the second season of India’s official championship on Microsoft Office application skills– COMPUDON– the gateway to the Worldwide Competition on Microsoft Office  applications.

With two out of the three Indian Champions sent to the US last year making it to the Top 10 world ranking, Indian students are once again getting ready to showcase their skills in using Microsoft Office applications to the world. This year the contest attracted students from all corners of the country. A large number of participants came from B and C class towns of the country especially from states like Maharashtra, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.  This competition helps students from B & C class towns to stand out, thus empowering them to be at par with their peers from the Indian metros and excelling in today’s highly competitive environment. Top six performing students, one each in Word, Excel & PowerPoint - 2007 & 2010 versions, will proudly represent India in the worldwide competition to be held  in Las Vegas, USA, in the month of August, 2012. CyberLearning will sponsor the international trip for these six India champions. Each of these six India Champions along with an equal number of 1st and 2nd Runners up will also be awarded with prizes worth Rs.50,000, Rs, 25,000, and Rs. 15,000  respectively during the India Award ceremony to be held at PHD House in New Delhi on June 8, 2012.

Students between the ages of 13 to 22 years, enrolled in an approved academic institution and those who passed any one of the qualifying Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification exams pertaining to Word, Excel or PowerPoint were eligible to compete. Students took the MOS exam in their respective schools/colleges and also at several of the 700+ MOS authorized testing centers across the country.

This is the tenth year of the highly regarded Worldwide Competition on Microsoft Office applications—hosted by Certiport. Since its inauguration, this event has become extremely popular as evidenced by the doubling of the number of exams entered worldwide in comparison with last year. In India, the number of participating students has grown 3 times since last year which was the first year of this contest in India. Students from over 150 cities participated this year. Honoring the important role that certification plays in the standards and assessment community, this premier student technology competition helps validate the fact that students have the expertise needed to compete in the global workforce. Participants who outperform their peers and make the final round of the Championship generally have perfect or near-perfect exam scores and completion times well below the allotted examination time.

“Microsoft Certifications help students around the world gain skills that will help them get jobs and a better life.  Compudon has helped students in India embrace the Office Certifications so they can compete on a global stage,” said Pankaj Dikshit, Academic Area Sales Lead for India.
