Hippo English Olympiad

Overview

The Hippo International English Language Olympiad is available to students in grades 2 to 12. Students can register for this exam either as an individual or through their school.

Objectives

PROMOTE
the English language
  CHALLENGE
students around the globe
  IMPROVE
cooperation between teachers



The aim of The Olympiad is to promote the English language, challenge students around the globe to compete in English language knowledge, and to improve cooperation between teachers. The main goal is to create and nourish friendly relations, international understanding and a spirit of sporting competitiveness between young people interested in English language from all around the world.

Test Format

Preliminary Round : The preliminary phase of the Olympiad will be divided into three parts: a test of reading comprehension (multiple choice questions), a test of listening comprehension, and a test of English use. There are no negative marks. The average number of marks achieved on all three tests determines the ranking.

Semi - Final Round : The Olympiad's semi-final round assessments will include a reading test, a writing test (30 questions), and an essay (except for Little Hippo). To each question, there is only one correct answer. There are no negative marks. The average number of marks achieved on both the reading and writing tests determines the ranking.

Final Round : Candidates take a Gatehouse Awards exam, which includes all four skills, in the Olympiad's final round. Candidates must also take a 30-question Use of English test in addition to the four-skill GA exams. The results of this test will be evaluated to rank candidates in the final round, and will not affect the GA examination qualification score.
