  • Frequently Asked Questions

    FAQ

    What is the Eco-Achievers?
    The Eco-Achievers 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 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 or Gurumukhi 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?
    Yes you can! The Eco-Achievers is open to schools of both English and Hindi medium.
    I am from a school not located in India. Can I participate? 
    If your school is an English/Hindi/Gurmukhi medium school, you can! Ask your Principal to register with us and enroll interested students. 

    How can my school register?
    Schools interested in participating may register online at www.ecoachievers.in or send an e-mail to olympiad@saevus.in or contact 022- 04972301 to receive their registration forms. Once successfully registered, the school can send us the names of the students interested, and we will enroll them.

    Can I register as an individual? 
    Unfortunately, individual registrations will not be processed. Only students from registered schools can enroll via their school. Contact your school Principal/Teacher to register your school for the Olympiad. 

    The date of the Olympiad does not suit us.
    To make things easy for schools, we have two dates for the Olympiad so that the school can choose the one that is most convenient to them. The dates are:
    FIRST DATE: 21ST AUGUST
    SECOND DATE: 25TH OCTOBER
