Humming Bird Cyber Olympiad - HCO

The Humming Bird Cyber Olympiad is held to evaluate students’ positive attitudes and improve their factual, logical, and problem-solving abilities. Mr Nitesh Jain started Humming Bird Education Limited, and it has aided students in writing world-level Olympiads by bringing several high-quality Olympiads under one platform.

The Humming Bird is also the first organisation in India to hold Olympiads in regional languages, assisting state boards and students. Humming Bird Education began two new sets of tests in 2022. Language tests (for six languages) and the Educator Excellence Olympiad are the two (EEO) sets. We will discuss the HCO Exam 2022 details in this article.
