How to participate in the Australian Science Olympiads
The first step in the Australian Science Olympiads is to sit one or more of the four challenging Australian Science Olympiad Exams.
Students can sit exams in Biology, Chemistry, Earth & environmental science* and Physics.
The cost is $10 (plus GST) per student per exam. Students are welcome to sit more than one exam. Find out the exam dates.
*Earth and environmental science in school is not a prerequisite for sitting the exam. Click here to read YiJie Neo’s story on her Olympiad journey that started by sitting the exam. She was then selected to represent Australia at the International Earth Science Olympiad and returned with an impressive gold medal to boot.
