In addition, students are also reminded to bring the following materials in order to answer questions for this round. Do note that we will not be providing any additional materials for participants if they fail to bring these things themselves.
  • Writing materials
  • Fine-tipped, permanent transparency markers (of at most five different colours)

The Preliminary Round will commence promptly at 0800 sharp. Schools which come after 0830 will not be allowed to participate.
