IBO 2020: Stellar Performance Despite COVID!

Singapore Placed Fifth in the 2020 International Biology Olympiad Challenge.

Although the 31st IBO which was supposed to be held in Japan was cancelled due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Singapore team has once again done well at the special IBO Challenge 2020 (a substitute for the 31st IBO Nagasaki, JAPAN), garnering one Gold medal and three Silver medals. Held on 11th and 12th August, students participated virtually in the remote-conducted competition from computer labs in their own schools. All exams (both practical and theoretical) of the IBO Challenge 2020 were created based on questions prepared for IBO2020 in Nagasaki, though some modifications were made so that participants could complete all questions without any lab facilities.
