The 2001 British Informatics Olympiad

BIO posterBIO 2001 is now closed for entries. Schools and colleges throughout mainland Britain were invited to enter the 2001 British Informatics Olympiad. This competition is 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.

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 2001. This involves solving a range of problems using a computer. The second stage is the final, held in Cambridge from 6-8 April. The top four finalists will make up the team to travel to Tampere for the 2001 International Olympiad in Informatics, hosted by Finland.

As well as the possibility of winning a medal - our competitors won fifteen in the last six 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.
