IEO Exam Syllabus
IEO tests note from the British Council
The British Council is extremely happy to be collaborating with SOF on providing the tests for the International English Olympiad. 

The tests for each level, although take into consideration the syllabus for each school year, are not directly related to them. The content of the tests is designed to focus on communication and use of English language, rather than rote learning and correct grammar only.

In the example, the response to the question ‘What time will you meet me tonight?’ could be:

I’ll meet you at 7.00 (will is for a future plan or promise)
·         I can meet you at 7.00 (possibility)

I would meet you at 7.00 (implies there might be conditions which make it difficult)
Therefore, depending on the other information provided, only one of these responses is likely to be correct.

We are also trying to provide you with language which:

will be useful for you to learn rather than English which is old fashioned, or out of date.
Focus on international usage - for example, it might be correct to say ‘I’m taking my lunch’ to say I’m eating lunch, but in international usage, this would be incorrect, as this would imply you were moving it somewhere, it would be more correct to say ‘I’m having lunch’ (consuming)
However, it would be incorrect to say ‘I’m having a headache’, as this is a state of being, and we do not use the continuous (…ing) form for states).
