Join us as we launch the Biology Challenge and the British Biology Olympiad for 2018!


Each year the Royal Society of Biology runs a number of competitions for school students. During Biology Week 2017, we will be launching the Biology Challenge and the British Biology Olympiad for 2018!

Biology Challenge

The Biology Challenge is an annual competition that aims to stimulate a curiosity for the natural world. The Biology Challenge encourages students to take an interest in biology beyond the school curriculum, particularly before they make their choice of subjects for further study.

Open to:  All students in Y9/Y10 in England and Wales, Y10/Y11 in Northern Ireland, S2/S3 in Scotland, and equivalent year groups globally.
Registration: Opens 12 October 2017.
Competition dates: 6 - 26 March 2018.

British Biology Olympiad (BBO)

The BBO challenges and motivates students with an interest in biology to expand and extend their talents. The competition allows students to demonstrate their knowledge by offering a wider syllabus than A level. The BBO provides a means of selecting a team to represent the UK at the International Biology Olympiad. This international competition attracts some of the top pre-university biology students in the world, with over fifty countries taking part.

Open to: Post-16 students.
Registration: Opens 12 October 2017.
Competition dates: 23 - 31 January 2018.
