About the Olympiad
The International Mendeleev Chemistry Olympiad (IMChO) is a major international competition for secondary-school students in chemistry.
It started in the USSR as the All-Union Olympiad in Chemistry in 1967.
Now more than 30 countries participate in IMChO.
An international jury of leading chemical scientists around the world make up the exam problems for the Olympiad.
The main working languages of IMChO are Russian and English.
In 2020 the 54th International Mendeleev Chemistry Olympiad will be conducted virtually. It will consist of two theoretical examination rounds.
