General Information

All exams (both practical and theoretical) of IBO Challenge 2020 will be created based on the questions that were supposed to be used for IBO2020 in Nagasaki. However, some modifications will be made so that students can solve it without any lab facility, equipment, or material. This allows students to take exam at any place, such as a local school or even at home, if it comes with a proper supervision. Guidelines for proper exam operations will be announced by the end of May.
