| The British Informatics Olympiad is
the computing competition for schools and colleges.
We are proud to present BIO 2005, sponsored by Lionhead Studios.
|The 2005 British Informatics Olympiad|
BIO 2005 will take place in February and March, 2005. The competition is open to all students in full-time pre-university education in mainland Britain, 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 2005. This involves solving a range of problems using a computer. The second stage is the final, held in Cambridge from 1-3 April 2005. The top four finalists will make up the team to travel to the 2005 International Olympiad in Informatics, hosted by Poland.
As well as the possibility of winning a medal - our competitors won over twenty in the last ten years, including four golds - the team will enjoy VIP treatment and get to socialise with contestants from over 75 different countries that will take part.
