iRAO - International Reasoning and Aptitude Olympiad

The SilverZone Reasoning and Aptitude exam is a fantastic approach to evaluating students’ reasoning and aptitude evaluation analogies. Based on the results of the iRAO assessment, a student can plan their path to success by focusing on their positive traits while working on their negative ones. Every student in each class should participate in the Silverzone International Reasoning and Aptitude Olympiad. It is a methodical assessment that aims to determine a student’s true potential in order to aid in the selection of the best career route for them.

Students in grades III to XII can participate in iRAO.

SilverZone administers the exam on two different days, which schools can pick from. Unlike previous SilverZone exams, the iRAO exam is administered by SilverZone.
