Dr. Snehal Karia, President & CEO – UCMAS India, said, “Over the last
24 years since its inception in 1993 at Malaysia, UCMAS has constantly
introduced and innovated new techniques to better develop the brain.
UCMAS has the distinction of having trained more than 10 lakh students
from 2000+ centers across 25 states in India, since 1999. The 16th
edition of the national competition is the ideal platform for children
to showcase their mathematical talents and to develop a healthy
competitive spirit early in life.”

“UCMAS is a cognitive skills development program using three learning
styles – Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetics/ Tactile. This program
majorly assists Human Anatomy  Development as this technique improves
functionality of 5 + 5 organs i.e. Spleen, Liver, Heart, Lungs, and
Kidney which in turn affect functionality of Stomach, Gall Bladder,
Small Intestine, Big Intestine, and Bladder respectively. In fact many
of our students have topped IIT entrance exams, competitive exams,
school boards. UCMAS training helps build confidence, increases focus
and concentration, and enhances memory – key cognitive skills useful
in ensuring overall academic excellence. UCMAS training also fosters a
love for numbers and removes math-phobia that enables success in
academics and entrance exams” added Dr. Snehal Karia.

One of the leading organisations associated with the competition for
last many years is Dr. Batra’s™ Homeopathy. Commenting on the
association, Dr. Mukesh Batra said  “We are happy to partner with
UCMAS for the third year in a row and work in conjunction with them to
contribute towards skilling the future of India, inspire greater
confidence in them and ensure all-round development.”

The Competition will be followed by a grand award ceremony wherein
over 1000 prizes will be awarded in different categories.
