National Coding Olympiad Jr

National Coding Olympiad Junior

(Season 2)

 

We, the Superteacher Team, are collaborating with Wissenaire, IIT Bhubaneswar to organize the National Coding Olympiad Junior. Through this olympiad, we aim to find out the gems among the coders and to encourage their coding skills. 

The first level will be completely based on logical skills and reasoning. Those who perform well at this level will all be awarded merit certificates and scholarships. Further, the top performers will be given a week-long training by world-class coders, after which they’ll appear for the level 2 test. The top performers at this level will be awarded a merit scholarship, a chance to interact with the highly respected professors of IITs.

NCO Junior will be conducted in three categories:

  • Preparatory (Grade: 3 - 5)
  • Middle-school (Grade: 6 - 8)
  • Secondary (Grade: 9 - 12)

 

For each category, NCO Junior will be conducted in two levels:

Level 1 - Coding Attitude Test (MCQ based Online Test)

Level 2 - Coding Aptitude Test (Online Live Coding Competition)
