The legendary beaker mugs are coveted prizes

A Team competition for sixth-form students

Read more about the 2022 competition and find out who won.

Cambridge Chemistry Race is a new chemistry competition for teams of three to five sixth-form pupils. The teams race against each other to solve unusual chemistry problems. Problems are marked by our examiners in real time and a live leaderboard is on display. Whoever gets the most points within the time limit wins!

All non-electronic resources are allowed, since the problems are set to test understanding of principles, rather than knowledge.

Chemistry-themed prizes (including the legendary beaker mugs) are awarded to the best three teams.

Chemistry Race is an international competition that originated at the University of Pardubice, Czechia.
