The International Science Olympiads (https://www.theinternationalolympiad.com/) are a series of prestigious international competitions in various fields of science, including Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy, and Earth Sciences. These Olympiads aim to identify and nurture young talents in science and promote interest and excellence in scientific disciplines. Here are some key points about International Science Olympiad exams!

Types of Olympiads

The International Science Olympiads typically include the following major categories:

  • International Physics Olympiad (IPhO)
  • International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO)
  • International Biology Olympiad (IBO)
  • International Astronomy and Astrophysics Olympiad (IAAO)
  • International Earth Science Olympiad (IESO)


Students participating in these Olympiads are usually in their late teens (high school students) and have excelled in their respective national or regional science competitions.


The Olympiads typically consist of two rounds:

  • National/Regional Round: Students compete at the national or regional level to qualify for the international competition.
  • International Round: Qualified students from various countries come together to compete in a series of challenging theoretical and practical exams.


Each Olympiad focuses on specific topics related to its field:

  • In IPhO, students are tested on physics concepts and problem-solving skills.
  • IChO covers various aspects of chemistry, including theory and practical experiments.
  • IBO assesses knowledge of biology, including theoretical and practical components.
  • IAAO involves both theoretical and observational tasks related to astronomy and astrophysics.
  • IESO explores earth sciences, including geology, meteorology, and environmental science.
