Contingencies for COVID-19

We successfully hosted the Intermediate Biology Olympiad 2020 at the height of lockdown, which had even more participants than usual. Therefore, we are confident the British Biology Olympiad will go ahead successfully.

Where schools are unable to open, or students are self isolating, teachers will be able to invigilate them remotely so they can participate from home. Further details on how to do this will be sent in early 2021.

Team selection may take place remotely.

The International Biology Olympiad is currently scheduled to take place in Lisbon. The Japanese hosted a fantastic virtual International Biology Olympiad in 2020, at which the UK secured 4 medals.
