The Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF), which hosts IEO every year, strives to assist students in assessing their English language skills. The SOF is a non-profit educational organisation that supports kids’ intellectual growth via contests and Olympiads. The International English Olympiad is a competition that evaluates English comprehension and usage. Students can participate in this exam, with no distinctions based on race, language, or nationality.
To do well in any of the Olympiads, you’ll need a solid IEO syllabus. However, the English Olympiad is not very difficult, and with adequate preparation and study resources, you may easily score highly. All you need is a strong grasp of the English language and a complete understanding of the IEO Syllabus to achieve a high score. Here, we discuss the IEO Class 12 Syllabus in detail.
