A student-led one-day competition event for teams of Y12/13s looking to study chemistry or related subjects at university. Questions are written by current university students and tackle problems across the chemical sciences, aiming to stretch the students beyond the A-level curriculum. The event takes place in three venues: Oxford, Cambridge and Pardubice (Czechia).

The registration for the Chemistry Race 2024 will open at 12pm on Monday 4th December 2023.
