How it works

The entry fee is R30 per learner if the school registers on behalf of the student. The school will receive R30 per learner. This amount is allocated for downloading and printing the paper; marking; moderation and the issuing a certificate to each learner. If the school does not want to do the marking, they will pay the fee of R35, and SA Olympiads will do the marking.

An additional R10 will be charged to schools or individuals writing the Olympiad digitally.

Minimum number of entries for a school should be 20 students per grade.

The entry fee is R150 per learner if the learner registers as an individual entry independent of the school.

Learners must be encouraged to do working on the paper provided.
No teacher should invigilate in respect of the learners taught by them.
Learners are requested to use ink instead of pencils.

Proceed to the payments section to select the number of entries per grade or pay for a single learner entry.
