Registration will open at 12pm on Monday 8th November 2021! The competition itself will then happen on Saturday 19th February 2022 at Cambridge. If restrictions are in place, we will move online like last year.
We expect the available places to fill quickly since they are
allocated on the first come, first served basis.
Therefore, you should know that in order to register, you will need:
You will be able to select whether your team will be able to participate only in person, only online, or either way. Therefore, we would like to encourage schools from all over the UK to sign up, even if coming to Cambridge is not possible for you. At this stage it seems that either format is possible, even though we are strongly hoping for an in-person competition.
As a part of the registration, we will ask your permission to use your data and this has to be agreed by all the participants. Please make sure that you read the privacy notice and obtain the necessary consents in advance to avoid delays in your application.
Once registration opens, the online form will be sent to our mailing list and it will appear on this website.

Apart from writing utensils, you should definitely not forget your favourite calculator (ideally one for each member of your team). Some questions may require you to read data of graphs. Therefore, we also recommend bringing rulers. In addition, you are allowed to bring any paper literature, notes or handouts that you think could be useful. No electronic devices, apart from dedicated calculators (not calculators on mobile phones, tablets or computers) are allowed.
Participation in the competition is free. Travel costs are not reimbursed.
