Various organization and schools usually promote Biology Olympiad. Press regularly covers the news of all Science olympiad Competitions.


Round 1:

POSN set up Science Competition in April to select 60-70 students.

Round 2:

Examination is given to the 60-70 students selected from the first round to select 4 Thai representatives.

 


IPST set up a committee to administer the test. Test questions come from the working group set up by the committee.


Approximately 60-70students participating in round 2 selection processes get one training camp during mid April - May (3 weeks).  The final 4 Thai representatives then get 2 weeks of training in June, before coming to the IBO in July.


IPST biology books, POSN biology books, and Campbell's biology text books.


In the first round, top 5 percents of students get Gold medals, the next top 10 percents get Silver medals, and the next top 15 percents get Bronze medals.


Media mainly covers the receptions for Thai representatives when they leave for competition and when they arrive after the competition, especially at the airport. Some may invite  Thai representatives for the interviews in a special TV program and the newspaper media.


Thai government provides support for the selection process. The Thai IBO team gets support from the government to come to the competition.


All budget comes through the Ministry of Education.


The students who would like to complete in Thai NBO must have these qualifications:
