In today’s world, general knowledge is becoming highly significant, which is remarkable. As a result, the SOF established the IGKO (International General Knowledge Olympiad) for students in grades 1 to 10. The IGKO Olympiad Syllabus is mandatory reading for students participating in the IGKO Olympiad. Its purpose is to stimulate students’ interest in current events and broaden their understanding.
Since the IGKO exam mainly aims to assess candidates’ general awareness, you can expect some current events-related questions. Besides that, the IGKO Olympiad Syllabus will cover essential questions in Geography, Mathematics, History, and Science, among other subjects. General Awareness, Current Affairs, Life Skills, and the Achievers Section are the four sections of the IGKO Syllabus Class 10. Students in grades 1 to 4 and 5 to 10 have different IGKO Syllabuses for each section.
