When is AstroChallenge held?AstroChallenge is held annually in June. We try to avoid clashes with other competitions such as Olympiads, or national examinations such as the O Level Higher Mother Tongue Oral Examination.
What kind of questions will be asked during the competition?The AstroChallenge syllabus is updated annually and can be found under "Resources". All questions will fall under at least one of the topics stated in the syllabus. The nature of the question will depend on the round. For example, the Individual Round consists purely of MCQ questions, while the Team Round consists mainly of open-ended short-answer questions. For a better sensing of questions, kindly refer to past year papers.
