sir my roll number is OD0413-08-D-059.In my IEO paper , set C, I have done question 21: option D and question 23: option B. but in my SPR you have written other option and cut my marks. My actual score must be 36 but you have given 34. Please correct it and if l am in 3rd after it give me medal


Shakti, there can be various reasons behind why some other answer is marked in the SPR other than what you think you marked. One reason could be that you might have solved the question correctly but marked another option in the OMR sheet by mistake. Otherwise you might not have bubbled the OMR correctly and that's why some other option was read as the answer marked by you.

SOF does not allow rechecking of papers as the answers are not corrected manually but by the machine. So I am sorry but the result you received would most probably be final. Although if you still wish to contact them, you can email your query on their official email ID: or

Hello poonam
It is good to hear that your daughter is taking part in olympiads from such a little age. There are some factors which affect the rank in these olympiads, one of them is alphabetic order of the name. Also, sometimes there is some mistake in the omr that gets neglected. I'd say don't take stress because she's at a very tender age and you should just motivate her instead of comparing her with other students.

If suppose i have got 100% in level 1, i have to write level 2 also

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019

Premlatha, there is a certain cut off that you need to score for being shortlisted for Stage 2. Anything that you score above the cut off is as good as scoring just the cut off marks. Your 1st level score is good for Level 1 only and not for Level 2. For example, lets say if the cut off was 50% and you scored 100%, your 100% is only good for Phase 1 and cannot be taken forward for Phase 2. You need to score again the required cut off for Phase 2 also. There is no carry forward option.
