Regular qualitative and quantitative assessment needs to be done at the national/international level in order to build up the scientific and IT talent pool.

SOF's integrity and commitment towards the fulfilment of its objectives have been lauded by thousands of schooling institutions and millions of students who have directly benefited from its educative, informative and evaluative programmes. For the future, SOF has several more innovative programmes lined up, which promise to bring about a sea change in the approach to education and preparation for competitive programs.
