|The 2000 British Informatics Olympiad|
BIO 2000 is now over. Schools and colleges throughout mainland Britain were invited to enter the 2000 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 will take place in schools during the first three weeks of March 2000. This involves solving a range of problems using a computer. The second stage is the final, held in Cambridge from 31 March-2 April. The top four finalists will make up the team to travel to Beijing for the 2000 International Olympiad in Informatics, hosted by China.
As well as the possibility of winning a medal - our competitors won twelve in the last five 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.
