  • 4. Qualifying Stage

    The Olympiad consists of two stages: the first (qualifying) and the second (final). During the qualifying stage, which takes place at the end of January, you will complete a test assignment that is automatically evaluated by a testing system. You are allowed to use a translator during the qualifying stage.

    Upon registration, you will gain access to demonstration versions of the qualifying stage tasks in the testing system.

    You can participate in a trial test in December-January before the registration deadlines close.

    Take a Trial Test

    Use the same username and password you received during registration to log in. 

    After logging in, please allow a few seconds for synchronization. Then, you will see a list of competitions. To start the test, click on the competition in which you wish to participate.

    You can take the trial test an unlimited number of times.

    This opportunity not only allows you to prepare for the competition content-wise but also to become familiar with the Olympiad's administration system. By doing so, you can save time during the actual competition, as you won't need to address technical details, feel more self-assured, and concentrate solely on the Olympiad tasks at the critical moment.

  • 5. Final Stage

    The final stage of the Olympiad will be conducted in March, in an online format with proctoring. It's important to note that the use of a translator during the final stage may be considered a violation in certain subjects. A detailed guideline for participation in the final stage will be published at the end of February.

    In some subjects, assignments for the Olympiad are entirely in English. We recommend reviewing recommended methods and tasks from previous years to gain a comprehensive understanding of the final stage.
