The British Physics Olympiad is a charitable trust overseen by a committee of trustees. It was initiated in 1979, and has been used as a qualifier for the selection of the UK Physics Team for the International Physics Olympiad from 1983. The BPhO aims to encourage the study of physics and recognise excellence in young physicists through annual physics competitions.
The British Astronomy and Astrophysics Olympiad(BAAO) papers are set to be stimulating, challenging students to think deeper, whilst at the same time bringing them closer to many of the latest ongoing research topics and discoveries in astronomy. In combination with its dedicated university based training camps, the BAAO provides students with an intriguing path to discovering more about astronomy and astrophysics, and following this through to higher education.

(For judging the global awards, British competitors will be ranked first by their overall scores, creating boundaries for the gold, silver and bronze awards. Competitors from other countries are not ranked together with their British competitors, but are compared by the boundaries. Chinese competitors with good results will therefore have an increased chance of receiving an award.)
