TANISHKA CREATES HISTORY AT THE INTERNATIONAL ENGLISH OLYMPIAD'18
We, at Presidium provide ample opportunities to our learners to excel and hone their skills and talent. Participation in various Olympiads is one of the platforms provided to our students where they get an early exposure to learning. Participation in Olympiads tend to make them very sharp minded and clever problem solvers because the Olympiad exams do not just test the student’s knowledge of concepts but the understanding and application of the concepts as well. We are immensely proud of Tanishka Phogat for winning gold medal and international rank 1 in International English Olympiad (IEO) - 2017-18. The International English Olympiad (IEO) is a one-of-a-kind examination, and first in the history of English language testing in India.
