Australian National Chemistry Quiz Awards
The Australian National Chemistry Quiz aims to promote interest in and appreciation of the role of chemistry and chemists in our society, and engender a better understanding of the nature and relevance of chemistry amongst students.
We do not see the Quiz as in any way being a nationwide assessment of chemistry knowledge, but rather it is designed to promote Chemistry. As far as possible it is independent of any particular syllabus.
In keeping with this philosophy, all students recieve a Certificate of Participation and we anticipate that 40% of all entrants will receive Certificates of Merit to acknowledge their efforts at Credit, Distinction and High Distinction levels. The top 800 entrants receive a Plaque and entrants who obtain 100% receive a Certificate of Excellence and a plaque.
