How is a team selected for the International Biology Olympiad?

Eligibility for the Team Selection round to represent the UK at the International Biology Olympiad, and the nature of selecting a team, closely mirrors the International Biology Olympiad.

We will contact the teachers of the best performers from the British Biology Olympiad to discuss this and arrange invitations to participate in UK Team Selection. We are currently expecting invitations for Team Selection to be sent two weeks after the British Biology Olympiad, and for selection for the UK team to take place in the Easter holiday.

Students which have not studied in the UK for the past two years, or who have attended an International Biology Olympiad previously, or who have attended UK Team Selection previously, are not normally eligible to participate in the Team Selection round.

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Warwick have carried out outstanding Team Selection rounds for many years.
