Admit Card for iiO 2022

The admit card must be carried on the exam day. Students are permitted to take the exam even if they do not have their admit card on the exam day.

iiO Result

Level 1 results for the Silverzone International Informatics Olympiad 2022 will be announced in March 2022. By visiting the official website and providing their credentials, candidates can check their iiO result 2022.

  • In April 2022, the Level 2 results will be released. The Level 3 results will be released in August/September 2022.
  • All students will receive a Descriptive Assessment Report and their results and participation certificates, which will help them track their progress during the Olympiad.

Preparation Tips for iiO

  • Knowing the curriculum will help students understand which topics are crucial and which topics they should pay less attention to while they study for iiO 2022.
  • Study plans are vital since they provide a comprehensive calendar for the entire day, ensuring that students do not waste time. Making a study schedule allows them to devote equal amounts of time to each subject.
  • Another crucial part of the International Informatics Olympiad preparation is knowing where to get information from books. The syllabus of iiO is fairly comprehensive and encompasses the syllabus of CBSE/ICSE board textbooks, yet students would benefit from learning from other books.
  • Practising with mock tests and sample papers offers you an idea of the types of questions the exam will ask. Practising example papers might also help students manage their time and be more accurate.
  • Understanding what a question is asking is learnt via experience and in-depth examination of the levels on which it operates. The questions in iiO 2022 are tough, and they occasionally ask for something that is written between the lines. As a result, it is critical to comprehend the standard of questions.
