Junior Science Olympiad Exam (New)

Image
The Junior Science Olympiad Exam is designed to take science students in years 7 to 10 to the next level. The exam is based on general science content (biology, chemistry and physics) and assumes students have a good knowledge of the Australian Curriculum – Science up to a Year 10 level. Some questions in the exam may also involve higher-level content (such as might be encountered by an extended Year 10 student). A range of analysis questions will also be included for which any necessary extra information is provided. The exam is held online, is two hours long, and questions are multiple choice. Students will receive a certificate indicating their grade based on their exam performance. Students that perform exceptionally well, and are eligible, may receive invitations to future science extension programs and activities hosted by Australian Science Innovations.
