The first round was held in schools November 4-7.
There were 2130 participants. There were six perfect scores.
Here is a list of students who are Invited to the Final Round 2013-14
Any student who has not qualified for invitation to the Final Round but who would nevertheless like to attempt the Final Round is welcome to email a short essay to firstname.lastname@example.org stating that they would like to participate. Such a student should consider carefully the fact that most of the questions on the Final Round are challenging at the level of the hardest ones on the First Round and that some are harder. However, any essay sent will get read, and consideration will be given to extending an invitation. There is no need for a student to offer evidence that they might do well. All that is requested is a clear statement that they want to participate and that they understand the challenging nature of the Final Round.
