Junior Competition 2021

Welcome to the 2021 ISMTF Junior Competition!

While we are all dealing with COVID restrictions, we wanted to still be able to provide this opportunity for our students. Though this format is new, we hope it can provide a path forward an possibly even an another way to get even more students involved in the future.

The competition is set up as an online test. Please follow the instructions given in the different sections carefully!

Do not close the browser tab with the test on it or you may lose your progress or be disqualified. Only one entry per student is allowed, duplicate entries will be disregarded.

The competition starts on Saturday, 13. March 2021 at 08:30 GMT and will end the same day at 16:30 GMT.

Students can complete the competition at any point within these times, as long as they stay within the times allowed for each section. The sections are timed automatically, so if you run out of time, the program will automatically close and you will not be able to submit your answers.

We strongly suggest that you keep a physical copy or scan of your answers in case of technical issues.
