It is a test of competence and proficiency in Science and is held annually at the National and International levels, based on syllabus prescribed by CBSE/ ICSE and the other State Boards. Apart from syllabus, a part of test paper is based on the Applied Science.
The tests at local or regional level do not provide the right insight and judgement about the challenges ahead. iOS builds a solid foundation for school students to excel in Science based on ICSE, CBSE and State board syllabus.
A comprehensive report based on Olympiad examination enables students to deliver deeper into their strengths and weaknesses and also motivates them towards excellence.
