Schools' Analyst Competition 2022

25 April - 27 May 2022, Online, United Kingdom

The Schools' Analyst Competition is returning to schools in 2022, with teams tasked with finding the perfect formula for fish and chips! Apply now for the chance to receive one of 300 kits to be sent to schools across the UK and Ireland.*

The Challenge
The competition kits will allow up to ten teams of three students to compete against each other in an analytical challenge focusing on the ingredients that make the perfect fish and chips. In a change to last year, you can now schedule multiple shorter sessions to better fit around your timetable. This flexible challenge will offer students the chance to apply their chemistry knowledge in a fun and rewarding way.

The Teams
The competition is for those in Year 12 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, S5 in Scotland or 5th Year in Republic of Ireland. Teams of up to three students must work together to solve the challenges, answer tough questions, and submit their answers to the online portal.

The Reward
The winning team from each school will receive a certificate to recognise their achievement, but will also be entered into a second round against the other winning teams in your region for the chance to be crowned champions! Regional winners will also receive a prize for them and your school.

Important Information
  • Registration closes on Friday 25th March 2022.
  • On Monday 28th March 2022, 300 entries will be selected at random to receive a box (this does mean not all entries are guaranteed to receive a box, this is sadly due to logistical limitations but is a 50% increase on 2021).
  • Boxes will be delivered to successful entrants by 25th April 2022.
  • Results must be submitted by 27th May 2022, with winning teams informed by 31st May 2022. (Note: the Scotland regional deadline has now been extended to 17th June 2022 due to clashes with the exam period. Winners will be informed by 21st June 2022.)
