Spanish

Apart from the national website. Each Regional Comunity has their own means of promotion.
We inform every secondary school sending them a letter in the month of October.


The main organizer is the Asociación Olimpiada Española de Biología, under the support of the Real Sociedad de Historia Natural.

The first selection among the students of every school is left to their own teachers. Then, there is a first round in the Regional Comunities (17), in march. Every one chooses three candidates for the National round.

During the National Competition, the leaders of the Regional Olympiads meet and check the questions, the rules, etc. This year we will have students from 16 of the 17 Regional Comunities of our country.


Two multiple choice tests, type A and B.

Four Practical exams.

The students take the test at the University, and the tasks are designed by the Scientific Committee of the Spanish Olympiad in collaboration with professors from the University  that hosts the event that year. 


We do not train them for the national round because at the moment they are selected for it, they do not have much time because they are in a period of examinations.

When they finish their University Entrance Exams, we spend one week training them for the IBO at the CIMA (Centre for Applied Medical Research) - Universidad de Navarra.


We recomend them the Campbell and the IBO syllabus.

 

 


Depending on their Comunity, at the regional round they will obtain different awards.

At the national round they can obtain some science books, microscopes and scholarships.


Every year we inform the main agencies about our activities.

This link is about one national TV interview (min 5).

The educational competences are transferred to the Regional Governments.


Our rules are in complete harmony with those of the IBO.
