How do students sit the Australian Science Olympiad Exams at home?

All students from the same school are required to sit the exam at the same time on the designated day. This will allow teachers to support students, and help if they experience any technical problems.

We ask that students sit the exam under the usual exam conditions while at home.

Maintenance of exam integrity

We have put in place measures to maintain exam integrity. These measures include, but are not limited to:

  • Unique question design that tests critical thinking and problem solving skills, not science facts
  • Question and answer randomisation. It’s unlikely that any two exams will be the same
  • Exam access is strictly time limited
  • Review of individual and cohort time stamps upon submission
