Local Chemistry Olympiad Exams


Approximately 10,000 U.S. students participate in local Chemistry Olympiad competitions. Exams are administered and coordinated by ACS local sections annually in March. Students are nominated for the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad competition based on exam scores and teacher recommendations.  In the Virginia Local Section, we offer two exams for this competition. The Second Year Examination is prepared by the National American Chemical Society. The First Year Examination is prepared locally.
