|The 2003 British Informatics Olympiad|
BIO 2003 took place in February and March, 2003. This competition was open to all students in full-time pre-university education, and involves solving problems against the clock, using nothing more than pen, paper and a computer.
23 August, 2003 - Mark Thompson and Paul Jefferys receive silver medals at IOI.
The IOI team (from left to right): Mark Thompson, Giles Edkins, Adam Bull and Paul Jefferys.
The BIO consists of three stages. The first is a 3-hour test, the British Informatics Olympiad, which will take place in schools during February-March 2003. This involves solving a range of problems using a computer. The second stage is the final, held in Cambridge from 11-13 April. The top four finalists will make up the team to travel to the 2003 International Olympiad in Informatics, hosted by the USA.
As well as the possibility of winning a medal - our competitors won twenty in the last eight years, including three golds - the team will enjoy VIP treatment and get to socialise with contestants from over 65 different countries that will take part.
