The Senior Science Quiz is designed for Year 11, 12 and 13 students, with questions which test logical thought, general knowledge and scientific skills.

The Quiz question booklets and answer sheets are sent out to each participating school, and all schools hold the Quiz on the same date. For 2024, this will be Wednesday 12 June.

Thousands of dollars worth of prizes will be divided among the highest achievers, the exact amounts depending on the number of high-achieving entrants. Certificates will be awarded to top performers in each Year group.

Quiz content and administration

Each school Year level has a booklet containing questions appropriate to that level. While we try to escape from the limits of the syllabus, there will be some overlap.

Each booklet will contain 45 multi-choice questions, and is designed to be completed in 50 minutes.

Detailed instructions on how to fill out the multi-choice answer sheets will be sent with the booklets. Please follow these instructions very carefully.

The Quiz is to be held during a suitable 50-minute period on Wednesday 12 June 2024.

One mark is awarded for each correct answer. No marks are given for either an incorrect answer, or no answer.
