UK Chemistry Olympiad 2024

Administered by the Royal Society of Chemistry - one of the world's most influential chemistry organisations

  • Paper-based competition

  • Designed to challenge!

  • Entrants should be at least 16

Register now!

Deadline for registration: 23 December 2024

Competition date:  26 Jan 2024 

Formats of papers:

5-6 analysis problems, each problem consists of 3-10 question parts

This competition stimulates a lot of debate and conversation around what chemistry is all about, so it’s a great opportunity for students to develop and showcase some of the skills they’ll need at university and beyond. 


High level of difficulty. 


The questions require A-level or equivalent chemistry knowledge and the ability to apply this knowledge to new situations and problems in a creative way.

The key is not to give up and remember that even a seemingly low mark can earn an award.


For example, in 2022, students needed 9–15 marks for the Bronze award, 16–25 marks for the Silver award and 26+ for the Gold award of the 2022 Chemistry Olympiad.
