The Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF) hosts the IGKO (International General Knowledge Olympiad). The IGKO Olympiad is open to students in grades 1 to 10. Its goal is to engage students’ interest in current events while broadening their knowledge. For students competing in the IGKO Olympiad, reading the IGKO Olympiad Syllabus is necessary.
Even though the IGKO test is mainly intended to assess students’ general awareness, there will be few current event questions. The IGKO Olympiad program will include basic topics in Geography, History, Science, and Mathematics. General Awareness, Current Affairs, Life Skills, and the Achievers Section are the four primary sections of the IGKO Syllabus Class 2. Students in classes 1 to 4 and grades 5 to 10 have different IGKO Syllabuses for each section.
