The 2013 British Informatics Olympiad

BIO 2013 will take place November - December 2012 and April 2013. 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 takes place in schools during November-December 2012. This involves solving a range of problems using a computer. The second stage is the final, which will be held in Cambridge in April. The top four finalists will make up the team to travel to the 2013 International Olympiad in Informatics, hosted by Australia.

As well as the possibility of winning a medal the team will enjoy VIP treatment and get to socialise with contestants from over 80 different countries that will take part.
