    ANCQ Competition 2018

    All secondary students are invited to enter ANCQ 2018.


    The ANCQ is a unique chemical education activity. It provides a major focus for secondary school students on the relevance of chemistry in an exciting and stimulating way. The RACI invites all students to participate in the ANCQ.

    The ANCQ aims to promote interest in chemistry and the role of chemists in our society. The ANCQ is not a nationwide assessment of chemistry knowledge, but rather an opportunity to promote Chemistry and for teachers to gauge the understanding their students have of the subject.

    All students receive 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. Students who obtain a perfect score of 30 out of 30 receive a Certificate of Excellence and a Lapel Pin. Students are encouraged to engage with the questions and are not penalised for incorrect answers. Students will only be competing with other students from their country or state, in the same year level.

    The ANCQ is truly an international competition with papers translated into seven different languages. The Quiz attracts students throughout Australia and 20 other countries, including India, Germany and China. We anticipate an even greater response for next year’s Quiz including students from Europe and the Middle East.

    The Quiz consists of 30 multiple choice questions to be answered in 60 minutes.

    The age divisions are:

    • Junior – Years 7-8
    • Intermediate – Years 9-10
    • Senior – Year 11
    • Final – Year 12

    Cost per entry is $6.00 incl GST
    Registrations open in March 2018 and the quiz will be held on Thursday 2 August 2018.
