Olympiad Exams are conducted by the Science Olympiad Foundation (a non-profit organisation based in New Delhi, India) to promote science, mathematics, general knowledge, introductory computer education and English language skills among school children. Olympiad exams are conducted at a very large scale for students from class 1 to 12.
Olympiad Examinations help to identify a child’s capability and real potential that may help him survive better in today’s modern competitive world. They motivate students to endeavor for better and deeper understanding of scientific facts so as to enhance their reasoning, analytical and problem solving skills. They also bring out the areas lacking proficiency so that so that a proper orientation can be given to improve in that area.
VMC provides its students with a set of study material that has been scientifically prepared to ensure comprehension of even the most difficult topics. It includes well designed layouts, innovative explanations, simple examples and other research-proven techniques of study material presentation. Every key concept is explained using carefully chosen questions with stepwise solutions which explain the core application of the concept
The study material covers every aspect of each topic and is completely self-sufficient. So much is our confidence in our study material, that we consciously ask our students to rely solely on VMC material, and not consult any other book or guide. We regularly upgrade our course material with appropriate modifications to meet the changing pattern and syllabus of the IITJEE every year
The course comprises of study material on all the three subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics) in the form of modules. Each module contains chapters, divided into three parts, as explained below.
Two years of arduous preparation boils down to doing well on that all important day of the IITJEE exam. The very nature of this exam instils a lot of pressure in students and hence it is very important to build the right examination hall temperament so that students can tackle pressure, surprises and create dynamic exam-management strategies quickly. Hence testing, assessment and frequent mock examinations form the core of VMC's pedagogy.
Class Tests are conducted regularly in the class to assess the understanding of the topics by the students. Many of these would be in the form of Surprise Quizzes, so that students are forced to be regular in their preparation.
The Test Series, held at regular intervals, simulate the pattern and timing of the actual IITJEE and are held at multiple Test Centres providing a real Exam-like experience to the students. These are national level tests taken by our students across India and the ranks achieved in these test are good indicators of what ranks can be expected in the IITJEE.
Students are given extensive practice on all possible question formats. These include MCQs, assertion-reasoning, comprehension based, match the column and other innovative question formats.
The most important aspect of testing process is through analysis of performance and benchmarking with the best performers. VMC's Analytics and Reporting engine provides very high level of analytics, benchmarking reports and even diagnostics after each test. It gives a snap-shot of the strength and weakness in the various subjects and topics, over a period of time. Moreover, personalized and advanced reports like Test Analysis Reports help a student evaluate the various factors which impact his/her performance. They help the students to know where they stand and the mistakes they have made as compared to other students of the same level.
Below is a small preview of the various reports, benchmarking and analysis our VMC Students get.
