The Australian National Chemistry Quiz (ANCQ) will be held at the College this term.
The ANCQ is an international competition with papers translated into seven different languages. The Quiz attracts students throughout Australia and 20 other countries, including India, Germany and China.
All students receive a Certificate of Participation and they may receive Certificates of Merit to acknowledge their efforts at Credit, Distinction and High Distinction levels.
The ANCQ is not a test of syllabus content. While some questions will rely on knowledge and understanding covered as part of studying the Australian Curriculum, the quiz is designed to promote interest in chemistry and chemical thinking. Questions that go beyond what is covered in syllabus documents can be answered by students applying their knowledge and understanding to stimulus material provided in the questions.
The Quiz consists of 30 multiple choice questions and is to be answered in 60 minutes.
The age divisions are:
- Junior – Years 7 – 8
- Intermediate – Years 9 – 10
- Senior – Year 11
- Final – Year 12
The Quiz will be held on Thursday, 2nd August.
Students who have registered for the Quiz will be provided with further details soon.
