The organization is proud to have spread its wings across India and has registered 33,150 schools nationally. It has a strong student base of 1 Crore + students out of which 2,00,000 students are class toppers. These exams are open for students from class 1 to class 10 in Science, Maths, English, Computers, General Knowledge Drawing, Social Studies and Essay Writing. Students can opt for one or more than one subject as per individual interest.
The merger is sure to prove beneficial for all its readers particularly in the educational field, especially students. Both Dwarka Parichay and Indian Talent Olympiad firmly believe that today’s children shape our country’s tomorrow. It is only when they are exposed to the right kind of competition, that they achieve great things in life. Dwarka Parichay therefore strongly urges the schools and students to try their hand at Olympiads with Indian Talent Olympiad, and elevate the standards of students and schools.
Students can opt to participate in the on-going Online Olympiads also known as the Student Test Series. These are weekly tests that can be taken on any smart phone or tablet. The Online Olympiads are held every 2nd and 4th Saturday. Students can take these tests anytime between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. The duration of the test is 25 minutes, in which students are asked 30 Multiple Choice Questions. The questions are as per school syllabus; thus such exams act as additional practice for school exams. The overall question paper includes problem-based figures, coding-decoding, series completion, odd one out, symmetry, mirror images, embedded figures and alphabetical test questions. The complexity of the questions increases with each class.
Schools can also make the most of these Olympiad exams through student registration. It is a matter of great pride for schools when their students win prizes and scholarships at national level Olympiads. There are no pre-requisites for these exams and no minimum eligibility criteria. Thus, subject teachers can identify competency of students in individual subjects. Teachers can encourage maximum participation so that students master the fundamentals of each subject.
The questions for Olympiads are designed to involve students in brainstorming activities. Psychologists believe that some children use their right brain more, whereas some have the tendency to use their left brain. However, the questions asked in Olympiad exams make students to use both part of their brains. It makes them indulge in brain exercises that help to improve their intellect. Today’s education does not focus on rote-learning. The children of today are considered to be much smarter and advanced as compared to previous times. They need to practically understand concepts taught in class. Students are able to come up with correct answers only when they are allowed to experiment and analyse rationally.
