Benefits of CMO
The primary organisation for organising Online Olympiads is CREST Olympiads. Most important competitive examinations, like JEE Mains, BITSAT, NEET, and others, have recently begun to be conducted online. As a result, these examinations assist students in becoming more familiar with the online way of testing. These tests assist students in determining their ability in today’s competitive environment. Students will get a practical understanding of the Olympiads that they would not be able to study in school by taking the CREST Olympiad test.
