She contested the World Junior Championship (Girls) (2012), and was =1st with three other players on 9.5/13 but ended up 2nd on tiebreak behind WGM Qi Guo and ahead of IM Anastasia Bodnaruk and WFM Medina Warda Aulia. She competed in the FIDE Knock-out Women's World Championship (2012), but lost her first round match to former Women's World Champion and Chinese GM, Zhu Chen. She fared better in the Belarussian championship in December, scoring 6/9 and finishing =8th, a point from the lead and a 2nd IM norm, in a field of 70. Although she won the 2013 Belarussian Women's Championship, her 6.5/9 in a weak field cost cost her 19 rating points. A few weeks later, she scored only 4/9 in the Moscow Open 2013G (women only section), shedding 13 ratings points and a world ranking in the U18 division. Although she won the Belarus U20 championship (on tiebreak) with 4.5/7, her score lost her a couple of rating points, which she more than recovered with an excellent 6.5/7 result in the 2013 season of the Czech-Slovak League.
