because we all want to feel we understand

What is it?
This is a 2-day competition (with pre-round) happening within the prestigeous Binus School Simprug (BSS).

DAY 1: Saturday 29th February between 8am-8pm.
DAY 2: Sunday 1st March from 8am. The gala celebration ends by 9pm.

What about accommodation?
This is a non-residential competition, and so participants independently travel to and from the Qualifier venue Binus School Simprug each day.

NOTE: For teachers looking to bring students internationally to this Qualifier, the closest 4* hotels are the Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel and Veranda Hotel at Pakubuwono. There are many smaller and cheaper options too.

Lots of intangible rewards! And also...
An attainment transcript containing the percentile ranks in each round, each skill attribute and a descriptor of their demonstrated strengths.
Medals are awarded to the better performing participants in each of the 6 skills categories.
Those who excel best in all 6 categories are also issued with a Golden Ticket invite to the Finals.

How much does it cost?
