| The British
Informatics Olympiad is
the computing competition for schools and colleges.
We are proud to present BIO 2002, sponsored by Lionhead Studios.
|The 2002 British Informatics Olympiad|
BIO 2002 took place in February and March, 2002. Schools and colleges throughout mainland Britain were invited to enter the 2002 British Informatics Olympiad. This competition is open to all students in full-time pre-university education, and involves solving problems against the clock, using nothing more than pen, paper and a computer.
The BIO consists of three stages. The first is a 3-hour test, the British Informatics Olympiad, which took place in schools during February-March 2002. This involves solving a range of problems using a computer. The second stage is the final, held in Cambridge from 12-14 April. The top four finalists will make up the team to travel to the 2002 International Olympiad in Informatics, hosted by Korea.
As well as the possibility of winning a medal - our competitors won eighteen in the last seven years, including three golds - the team will enjoy VIP treatment and get to socialise with contestants from over 65 different countries that will take part.
