Note that there are two parts to the competition this year.
The first part of the competition is run for a week, from Monday March 27 to Friday March 31, while the second part of the competition will be held on Wednesday May 3.
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 2023)
Entries for the first part of the competition should be in by 12pm on Monday March 27. Entries should be submitted on-line as soon as possible. This is especially important this year as you will be able to select a preferred time slot to have your school enter and some time slots will be popular!
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 first part of the competition after Monday March 27 but during the week the first part occurs, you must still enter in by the due date.
Return of Papers to the Organisers (for 2023)
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 12.
Announcement of Results
Results should be available by early August.
Prizes and Prize Certificates will be sent out to schools along with the official results. This should happen some time during Semester Three.
