“If you like to memorize the endless bits and pieces of biological info then study Biology. If you you prefer to understand why it is not a good idea trying to run into a brick wall then study Physics. But if you simply enjoy being a detective and would like to hone your knowledge, logic, intuition and common sense while having fun solving Chemistry problems, then IChO could be the right choice for you.”

Biolympiads.com is the first website designed to help you prepare for biology olympiads and competitions. Whether you are preparing for your national biology olympiad, school Biology exam (for example, AP Biology) or if you are just interested in life sciences, this blog is for you.
Established on the 4th of July 2014, Biolympiads.com started in blogger.com format but has recently been upgrade to WordPress. I hope that the new design will be much more convenient to use. In the blog, you will find information not only about biology olympiads from all over the world (including USABO, BBO, INBO and many others) but also about biology-related competitions ranging from the Science Olympiad, Science Bowl, and Brain Bee. I also gathered various science-related competitions, including research project contests, summer internships, and essay contests.
My goal is to encourage students from all over the world to participate in science competitions and spread awareness about these opportunities globally.
Don’t forget that all your hard work will one day bring ground-breaking discoveries to light that will change lives of many people all over the globe.
So work hard, share your knowledge, and help your peers to master biology because only together we will make science benefit us!
Martyna Petrulyte, BSc (Hons),
I was born in Lithuania, a small country in Eastern Europe. As I was and I still am passionate about biology and science education, I created this blog for biology olympiads and contests to spread a word about amazing opportunities for high school students. I am a former participant of the two International Biology Olympiads 2012 in Singapore and 2013 in Switzerland where both times I won bronze medals. In addition, three times in a row I won a gold medal in the National Lithuanian Biology Olympiad which made me unbeatable in the country in 2011, 2012 and 2013. So here I would like to share my experience I have acquired during those years while preparing for the IBO. Currently, I am based in the United Kingdom where I obtained my BSc (Hons) in Biomedical sciences (Anatomy) with Summa cum laude.
