Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF) organizes many Olympiads for students of class 1st to 12th. IEO (International English Olympiad), IMO (International Maths Olympiad), NSO (National Science Olympiad) and NCO (National Cyber Olympiad).
IEO is a single level exam. Rest of them are conducted at 2 levels.
Benefits of Participating in Olympiads and Competitions
Early Exposure to Learning and Competition
Students gain additional knowledge, they learn the way to answer and confidence to write papers. The competition tends to make participants into very sharp-minded and ‘clever’ problem solvers.
It gives a chance to students to sharpen their skills by tackling a number of problems at a level they are not likely to encounter in their classrooms.
Understanding the Concepts and Application
The Olympiad exams not just test the student’s concept but the application of those concepts. For example, every child learn about calculating HCF and LCM but the questions a student’s face will be based on “Applications of HCF and LCM”.
Through Olympiads and Competitions, students can analyse their performance at school, city, state, national and international level.
Awards and Recognitions
Awards are always good for students’ moral after they achieve something. Prizes for Olympiads winners include cash awards, medals, gifts, certificates etc. The International toppers from each class are awarded at a grand prize distribution ceremony.
Above all, the proud feeling of representing the state/country at national or international level is the best reward for the student.
Solid Foundation for IIT JEE/AIPMT (NEET)
Participating and preparing for exams like NSTSE, NTSE, JSTSE, NSO, IMO helps in development of student’s IQ, Logical and Analytical thinking from very young age which helps in later stage when they prepare for JEE, NEET and other competitive exams.
