1. How Do I Participate in the IOAA?
Ans. The IOAA is a globally recognised assessment with strict participation guidelines. Students are unable to compete in the Olympiad directly. Students must be citizens of a country with a National Olympic Committee in order to compete. The committee must be recognised by the International Olympic Committee. Each country is required to send a team of students to compete. The team must eventually consent to abide by the IOAA's Statutes. The IOAA board of directors has the final say on a variety of issues affecting the IOAA. In the event of a disagreement, international legal and diplomatic arrangements must also be considered.
