Designed to challenge
Designed to challenge and inspire, the UK Chemistry Olympiad is a unique opportunity for students to push themselves further and excel in the chemistry field.
Budding chemists will develop critical problem-solving skills, learn to think more creatively and get a chance to test their knowledge in new, real-world situations.
A total of 8668 students from 750 schools took part in Round One.
A total of 34 students have been selected for the second round of the Olympiad. Round Two will be run remotely at the start of April.
Finally, four of these students will then go on to represent the UK in the highly prestigious final international round. The final is hosted by China from 10 to 20 July 2022.
Run annually, the competition is made up of three stages that start with a written test and end with four students representing the UK at the international round.
