How many students can I enter?

There are no limits on participation numbers.

How much will it cost?

£30 for unlimited students.

Can my students have extra time?

Students who usually have extra time in public examinations may have the appropriate proportion of extra time to complete the Biology Challenge. It is up to the invigilating teacher to facilitate this correctly.

Contingencies for COVID-19

We successfully hosted all three competitions in 2021, with more participants than usual.

Where schools are unable to open, or students are self isolating, teachers will be allowed to invigilate them remotely so they can participate from home.
