International Olympiad of Science (iOS)



Official Website : iOS

Society of Science Education, a registered organization Under societies registration act XXI of 1860 by Govt. of NCT of Delhi, founded and run by experts in Science, Education and media, presents the International Olympiad of Science (iOS) with the objective of promoting Science Talents in India and abroad. The organization actively promotes Science education through workshops, seminars, refresher courses, Science Olympiads at the national and international levels. SSE is supported by SilverZone, New Delhi. SilverZone is an ISO 9001:2000 Certified organization devoted to the field of IT and education.

iOS assesses the student's aptitude in Science Subject and motivate them to progress in the field of Science and technology. The students are benifited in the following ways:

  • Students judge themselves at international levels. The tests at local or regional level does not provide the right insight and judgment 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 delve deeper into their strengths and weaknesses. It also motivates them towards excellence.
  • iOS promotes Science talents from school to national and higher levels by recognizing their merits and awarding them.
  • iOS promotes participation of the teachers for the benefits of the student community.
  • For Classes 1-2 : There will be 40 questions and the duration will be of 60 Minutes.
  • For Classes 3-12 : There will be 40 questions and the duration will be of 40 to 60 Minutes.*

*Time Division
Participants from Class 6th to 12th will be required to complete the test between a minimum of 40 minutes and a maximum of 60 minutes. Answer sheets cannot be submitted before the completion of 40 minutes. Participants should try to submit the answer sheet, with maximum correct answers, at the earliest after the end of 40 minutes to get the benefit of the third tie-breaker** rule. The invigilator is expected to write the correct time in the appropriate space provided in the answer sheet. As time is the third, not the first/second tie-breaker rule, students are requested to focus on achieving maximum correct answers in an optimum time.

**Tie-breaker
Each question may not carry the same mark. In case of tie-up, preference will be given to the student who has attempted a greater number of questions correctly. The second preference will be given to following respect: First Science related question and then applied Science. The third preference will be given to the student, who has submitted the answer sheet earlier than the other/s. Should the tie-up still exist, a telephonic interview will be conducted with the participant.
