**UMO Exam Pattern for Grades 3 to 11 **

The UMO exam will weigh 25–30% from the next class and 70–75% from the previous one. This makes it a good option for students like you from third through eleventh grade to assess how much you remember whatever you have learnt in the preceding class.

For example, the exam for Class 3 rd will carry 100% of the weight of Class 2nd plus additional weightage of the second class but not of very advanced level. All students in grades 3 to 11 will be covered by this.

**UMO Exam Pattern for Grades 1 and 2**

If you are a student of Class 2, the exam will carry the same weight as the Class 1 exam. Exam scores for Class 1 will have a 100% weighting for pre-primary classes.

However, to ensure that students of class 1 have no problems taking the exam, parent/teacher assistance will be provided for the class 1 exams.

**Components of the UMO Exam **

**There are two components of the exam:**

**Classic area:** You must note that questions about real-world applications of mathematical ideas will be found in this area.**Scholar Section**: You must keep in check that High Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) questions will be found in this section.
