International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO)

The International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO)
is a competitive examination open to students of all countries in the world, primarily studying in secondary schools. All basic subjects of Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics) are given roughly equal representation in the IJSO examination.
The Junior Science Olympiad program will follow the following 5 stages:
Stage I: National Standard Examination in Junior Science (NSEJS)
Stage II: Indian National Junior Science Olympiad (INJSO)
Stage III: Orientation cum Selection Camp (OCSC) in junior science
Stage IV: Pre-departure Training Camp (PDT) for IJSO
Stage V: Participation in International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO).


NSEJS is the first stage of selection of students in the Junior Science Olympiad Programme. NSEJS is organized by the Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT). Every student aspiring to go through successive stages of the programme must enroll for NSEJS.
Eligibility: All Indian students who are in Class X or lower are eligible to appear in NSEJS. If they qualify in the NSEJS, they will be eligible for subsequent stages leading to participation in International Junior Science Olympiad.
Syllabus: The syllabus for NSEJS will be broadly equivalent to the secondary school level (upto Class X) of CBSE. The different basic subjects of science (physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics) will have roughly equal emphasis. This is only a broad guideline, and there is no detailed syllabus given for NSEJS. NSEJS will emphasize comprehension of the subject, not rote memory. The question paper will consist of 80 multiple choice questions, each with only one of the four options correct.
