  • Frequently Asked Questions

    FAQ
     

    What is the Eco-Achievers Olympiad?
    The Eco-Achievers Olympiad is a pan-India Olympiad brought to you by Saevus to create awareness and knowledge about nature and environment. Participation in this Olympiad not only brings in many awards and prizes for the students, schools, teachers and principals but also recognizes the school as a Green institution. 

    Why should I take this test/What is special about the Olympiad?
    The Eco-Achievers Olympiad gives you the opportunity to become aware of nature and the environment. It is a test that doesn't really encourage rote learning as it emphasizes on the logical application of a knowledge base. 

    So there are two reasons why it is different from the other Olympiads. Usually most Olympiads are only for competitive exams so it is only the toppers who participate. But here as we are talking of nature and the world we live in, anyone who loves nature can participate. Secondly this one is not about marks and ranks alone. It is about lessons to be learnt in life…it is something that will make every child in your school a responsible citizen tomorrow. 

    What are the eligibility criteria to participate in the Olympiad? 
    To be able to register, your school must be an English or Hindi medium school affiliated to CBSE, ICSE, IB or any state board. Once the school has registered, it will enroll you. You have to be a student of Class III – X of a registered school to participate. 

    I am from a Hindi medium school. Can I also participate in the Eco-Achievers Olympiad?
    Yes you can! The Eco-Achievers Olympiad is open to schools of both English and Hindi medium.

    How can my school register?
