Science Olympiad Syllabus Class 8

Class 8 is the time when students must practice additional questions apart from the ones covered in school textbooks. The International Science Olympiad (ISO) syllabus is the same that is prescribed by schools. It is as per the norms set by the CBSE, ICSE and State boards of the country. Students who practice questions from the Olympiad syllabus prepare themselves not only for national competitions but also for school exams. High school is the right time where students must start exposing them to different questions. School textbooks may not suffice at this age, especially looking at the present competition. Olympiad syllabus helps students to identify their aptitude and help them to choose their specializations in the future.
