About the Australian Science Olympiads

The Australian Science Olympiad Exams are challenging but rewarding online exams held once a year in the following disciplines:

  • Junior (for Year 7 – 10)
  • Physics
  • Biology
  • Earth and Environmental Science
  • Chemistry

All students who wish to be considered for stage two and three of the program must sit the exam. Students may sit more than one exam. Following the completion of the exams, students may be offered a place in our pathway programs. All programs are invitation-only.

Each of these programs is a chance or students to further extend themselves in their discipline, connect with subject experts, and develop new friendships with like-minded students from across the country.
