26th Singapore Chemistry Olympiad (SCHO) sees 7 Gold, 7 Silver and 2 Bronze

The Singapore Chemistry Olympiad (SChO) is jointly organised by the Singapore National Institute of Chemistry (SNIC), Chemistry Department of National University of Singapore and the Ministry of Education. The competition is open to JC 1 or equivalent students. It consists of a theory test and a practical test, each of approximately 3 hours, taken over two days.

The general aims of the Singapore Chemistry Olympiad are to:

§  promote an interest in Chemistry,

§  provide an opportunity for academically inclined Chemistry JC students to pit their knowledge in Chemistry and spar against each other,

§  identify a pool of students who are talented in the Chemistry discipline for training for eventual selection of a national team to represent Singapore in the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO).

Students were selected from Chemistry Olympiad modules and underwent one month of intensive training after exam before the theory round.    

This year we have the most number of gold medals and the Best Student award. In addition, we have all gold and silver medalists invited to IChO phase 1 training.

NUS High School won 7 Gold, 7 Silver and 2 Bronze.
