How it Works

1. Once registered, Regional Coordinators (RCs) will be sent full sample papers with answers.

2. RCs will be emailed the Olympiad tests and markschemes a few days before the set date.

3. They print out sufficient numbers of  tests.

4. Participants sit the test under strict exam conditions.

5. RCs then mark the papers according to the markscheme and email back to IAVM the results on a prepared spreadsheet.

6. IAVM collates the results and awards certificates.

The Olympiad can be organised and run either through schools or through private Regional Coordinators.
