A student-led one-day competition event for teams of Yr12/13s looking to study Chemistry or related subjects at university.

Questions are written by current university students and tackle problems across the chemical sciences, aiming to stretch the students beyond the A-level curriculum.

The registration for the Chemistry Race 2024 will open at 12pm on Monday 4th December 2023.

State schools do need to register when it opens (places go really quickly) and specify a preference for either Oxford or Cambridge and whether they can only attend one venue. Students can register on behalf of the school. To help schools with registering quickly for the race, they’ll need to have the following information:
