Competition Date

Note that there are two parts to the competition this year.

The date for the first part of the competition is Wednesday April 14, while the second part of the competition will be held on Wednesday May 12.

If possible, all students at a school should sit each part of the competition concurrently.

Should a school fail to organise the competition until a later day (it happens!) then the students from that school may still be eligible for Merit Certificates (and above), but not for monetary prizes.

Other Important Dates

Information on How to Enter

Information on how to enter will be emailed to every secondary school in the country during late January or early February.

Entry Dead-Line (for 2021)

Entries for the first part of the competition should be in by 12pm on Wednesday April 14. Entries should be submitted on-line as soon as possible.

We will send out invitations for selected students to participate in the second part of the competition when the results for the first part are announced. Remember that only invited students may participate in the second part of the competition.

If you wish to sit the competition a day or two later please contact us first to let us know. You must still put your entry in by the due date.

Return of Papers to the Organisers (for 2021)

Time is of the essence. Grading for the competition begins during the University mid-semester break. We cannot guarantee grading if papers have not arrived by Friday May 28.

Announcement of Results

Results should be available by early August.

Prize Winners

Prizes and Prize Certificates will be sent out to schools along with the official results. This should happen some time during Semester Three.
