Swiss Chemistry Olympiad

First round

The first round of the Swiss Chemistry Olympiad consists of registration with a multiple choice exam. You are eligible to participate if you are less than 20 years old on July 1 of the Olympic year and are not yet enrolled at a university. The best 50-60 participants will be invited to the central examination in Berne. The effective number is determined using the largest point difference.

The Swiss Chemistry Olympiad is also responsible for the selection of Liechtenstein. Participants from our neighbouring country take part in their own competition, which is based on the Swiss Chemistry Olympiad and includes the same events. In the first round, up to 10 students can qualify for the Liechtensteinian central examination.
