S studies in the Second Standard and has an essay competition on Wednesday.

N has the essay competition immediately before Q and N does not have the essay competition on any day after that of S,

=> N has competition on Monday and Q on Tuesday.

The one who studies in the First Standard has an essay competition on Saturday and the one who studies in the Seventh Standard does not have an essay competition on any of the days on or before Friday,

=> The one who studies in 7th standard has competition on Sunday.

The one who studies in the Third Standard has the essay competition immediately after O, => O has competition on Thursday and the one who studies in 3rd standard has competition on Friday.

The one who studies in the Sixth standard does not have the essay competition immediately before or after S, => The one who studies in 6th standard has competition on Monday.

Q does not study on 5th standard, => Q studies in 4th standard and O in 5th standard.

Since, R does not study in 3rd standard and does not have competition on Sunday, => R has competition on Saturday.

Also, M has competition before P, => M has competition on Friday and P on Sunday.
