The Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF) hosts the IGKO (International General Knowledge Olympiad). The IGKO Olympiad examination is held for students in grades 1 to 10. Its goal is to encourage pupils to become more interested in current events and general knowledge. Students participating in the IGKO Olympiad must be familiar with the IGKO Olympiad Syllabus.
Since the IGKO exam is mostly used to evaluate candidates’ general awareness, you must expect some questions about current events. Aside from that, the IGKO Syllabus will include fundamental questions from Geography, History, Mathematics and Science, among other subjects. General Awareness, Current Affairs, Life Skills, and Achievers Section are all included in the IGKO Class 4 Syllabus. Students in Classes 1 to 4 and grades 5 to 10 have different IGKO Syllabuses for each section.
