“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 other STEM competitions. Whether you are preparing for your national biology olympiad, school biology exam (for example, AP Biology), MCAT, BMAT or if you are just interested in life sciences, this website is for you.
Established on 4th of July 2014, Biolympiads.com started in the blogger.com format but has recently been upgraded to WordPress. I hope that new design will be much more convenient to use. In the website, you will find information not only about biology olympiads from all over the world (including USABO, IBO, BBO, INBO and many others) but also about other 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 and STEM 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!
I am a edupreneur 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 Lithuanian National Biology Olympiad (LitBO) 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 IBO.
I have been tutoring students for the olympiad for 4 years now and I obtained my BSc (Hons) in Biomedical sciences (Anatomy) with Summa cum laude in 2017 from the leading UK university. In 2018, I published my first book, ‘How to Prepare for the Biology Olympiad and Science Competitions‘.
