Register for the 2024 Olympiads through CambriLearn Online School and you can receive National recognition for your understanding of Mathematics or English. 

What are the Olympiads?

The South African Olympiads is a national competition where the brightest young minds participate in a grade-appropriate exam in either Mathematics or English. Last year, 120 000 students participated in the Olympiads in a bid to become one of the top 3 learners in the country. 

Winners receive a medal and a cash prize in recognition of their achievement. 

Who can enter?

Any student can enter the Olympiads which have 2 exams, each set for a specific grade level: 

How and when will I write

CambriLearn will register you to write online, at home under invigilation rules (similar to the rules followed when you complete CambriLearn Assignments and Exams). Invigilators will receive the papers 4-7 days before the student needs to write. 

The high school exams are written in the first week of August and the primary school exams are written in the second week of August. The exact dates will be confirmed by the organisers in advance. 

What are the costs?

It will cost R40 per exam you want to enter. 

Please note that your registration will not be confirmed until you have paid CambriLearn for your entry and have sent a proof of payment. CambriLearn will contact parents directly to confirm the payment method. 

How do I prepare?

Students are encouraged to have a solid understanding of the syllabus covered in their grade. Students can visit the SA Olympiads website where there are a number of past papers which have been made available to practice. 

When is the entry cut-off date?

Students are required to register by the 5th of July 2024, to ensure the timely submission of their entries to the SA Olympiads. 

Payments are to be made to CambriLearn by the 5th of July 2024. Those who have registered but have not paid will not be entered into the SA Olympiads.
