1. What is the use of the Olympiad exams?
The Olympiad exams are very useful for the students in the sense that they help instil a sense of competitiveness among them. Students who partake in the Olympiads are exposed to a plethora of opportunities, which if utilised in the right manner, can prove to be very useful for the future. Students get to develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter as they prepare for the exam. In addition to this, students learn to approach a question analytically and apply concepts that they have previously learnt. Moreover, Olympiad exams are a great tool for a student’s assessment of his her strengths and weaknesses over a particular subject matter both at the national and international levels.
2. How is the Olympiad exam conducted?
The Olympiad exams for the different categories are conducted at different levels. The mode of conducting the Olympiad exam is online and students are also required to appear online as well. While the National Cyber Olympiad, International GK Olympiad and International Commerce Olympiad are conducted as angle level exams, the National Science Olympiad, International Mathematics Olympiad and the International English Olympiad are conducted in more than one level.
3. How to participate in Olympiad exams?
Students in schools registered with SOF can register and apply for the particular Olympiad exam and category they are eligible for. In case a particular school is not registered with the SOF, a request for the prospectus with an application form can also be made by the schools through email or phone. An application fee also has to be paid by each student in order to be able to participate in the Olympiad exam.
4. Can I give the Olympiad exam after Class 12?
Olympiad exams, whether national or international, can only be attempted by students enrolled in Classes 1 to 12. Thus, only pre-university students can participate in these exams. So, if you have completed your 12th standard or equivalent exam, you will not be able to appear for the Olympiad exams. Students should thus use the opportunity to attempt these exams when they are in school as they will not be able to participate in any Olympiads once they pass out from school.
5. What are the syllabi for the Olympiad?
The syllabi for the CBSE, ICSE and several state boards are used to develop the Olympiad exam questions. On the SOF website, you may also find the comprehensive details of the programme.
6. How are students ranked in the Olympiad exams?
Based on the results of the exams and each competitor's specific achievements, the competitors are all ranked. After the results are released, students are given a Student Performance Report (SPR), which provides a complete analysis of the student's performance.
