We recognise the challenges students, teachers and schools face at the moment. We have secured funding to make the British Biology Olympiad free to all UK schools. Schools outside of the UK will only need to pay £30 to enter an unlimited number of students.
UKBC will now exclusively send personalised e-certificates. In previous years, we distributed templates which teachers could distribute and followed these with posted personalised card certificates. From 2022, we will only send secure e-certificates.
Last year’s British Biology Olympiad and Intermediate Biology Olympiad papers are now avilable to download. Remember, these papers are for interest only and do not come with mark-schemes.
