Middle School Competition 2022


The competition will take place on Saturday April 30, 2022. between 9.00 am and 12.30 pm (Central European time) and is available to schools with up-to-date annual registration.

  • Please make sure that students are entered in teams of three and are together in the same room being supervised by at least two teachers from the school.
  • Each team will need access to one computer to enter their answers.
  • We encourage all participants to begin at the same time, but the timer on the exercises begins when the team begins.
  • There will be 3 x 40 minute rounds during the morning with 2 x 30 minute breaks in between the rounds 
  • If schools are closed and students are competing from home, we ask the school to be responsible for making sure that the 3 students can work together via an online platform and that one team member is responsible for entering the answers.
  • In addition, we ask schools to ensure that individual students are being supervised by someone at home for the duration in the spirit of keeping the competition honest. We will rely on schools to manage this.
  • We remind you that no calculators are allowed and that students are only using pencil and paper to work on problems.

Before you begin the registration process, please make sure that you have done the following

  • Make sure that you have downloaded the word document template for submitting your questions. Read those instructions carefully and please give some time and thought to your questions. Registration depends on submitting completed questions as described on the template.
  • Places are not limited so if you register in time and pay then your students will be a part of it. We would rather you took your time to write good questions.
  • Registration needs to be complete by the end of the day on Sunday 27th March, although we would greatly appreciate anyone that can do so beforehand so we can begin compiling the questions.
  • Registration fee is 37 euros per.

We look forward to another great competition this year!
