Level 2: The Level 2 is organised for students of classes 3-10 only for English, Maths and Science. The qualifiers to Level 2 are mentioned at this link.
Since this is an online exam, the exam will have to be taken by student from home. The student should have a working laptop, desktop or tablet with good Internet connection. The Internet connection speed should be 2 mbps and the desktop/laptop should have latest version of the browser (preferably Google Chrome). The exam can't be taken using Mobile device.
We can't rule out possibility of students using unfair means. In fact, cheating does take place in school environment as well. It all depends upon the personal integrity of students and parents.
We think that these Olympiad exams are stepping stones to larger and more competitive exams later in life. The basic intent of these exams is to give a flavour of competitive exams to students who are deprived of similar exams in their schools.
The best we have done is that, all our exams are webcam monitored. So, in case, any student is found using unfair means will be disqualified without notice, which even means the parent sitting with the child (except for classes Prep/KG and 1)
In case, you aren't comfortable with the idea of taking such exams from home, we would request you not to register.
Also, do note that the exams for Prep/KG and class 1 students will be parent/teacher assisted as these exams are just to give the kids a flavour of how competitive world is/will be. The parent/teacher can help the little champ in understanding the question and then the child can answer the question based on his/her ability.
