IEO Class 8 Syllabus

The Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF) organises the International English Olympiad for school students in partnership with the British Council. It’s an English language and grammatical competition that allows participants to assess their own talents, fluency, and competency in the English language. Students participate in IEO at a variety of levels, including national and international competitions.

The SOF IEO course is based entirely on the school curriculum, however, it emphasises English communication and usage in everyday life. The four areas of the IEO Syllabus 2022-23 are Word & Structure Knowledge, Reading, Spoken & Written Expression, and Achievers. The SOF IEO Level 1 paper has 35 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) for grades 1 to 4, and the question paper for grades 5 to 12 contains 50 questions for 60 points.
