I have written ZIO and going to write ZCO exam.. if i get selected in one of them, which college i will get. (I am from tamil nadu)

Arya 27th Nov, 2019

Hi Aswin,

To be clear, the Zonal Informatics Olympiad and Zonal Computing Exams are not entrance exams and will not grant you admission to any college. These examinations are held for the selection of the national team to represent the country in International Olympiad in Informatics. If you get selected for any of those then you will have to give the Indian National Olympiad in Informatics.
