We are proud to present BIO 2018.
The 2018 British Informatics Olympiad

BIO 2018 will take place December 2017 - January 2018 and April 2018. 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 December and January. This involves solving a range of problems using a computer. The second stage is the final, which will be held in Cambridge in April 2018. The top four finalists will make up the team to travel to the 2018 International Olympiad in Informatics, hosted by Japan.

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.
