Olympiads in Hungary

Hungary has a long tradition of organising scientific contests for secondary school students, in most school subjects including mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, history, foreign languages, or most recently, in informatics. Our students are active and successful participants of international student competitions from their very beginnings.

Most recently we mentioned above, hence if we compare the world history of computer technology to the history of our national olympiad in informatics, the so called “Tihamér Nemes” National Contest, you will find it has a rather long history. Our first national informatics contest was in 1985. Today, the contest is organised in three categories for primary and secondary school students in the age groups 10—14, 15—16 and 17—19, and in three rounds (firstly, at school, then on the regional, and finally on the national level). Annually, the total number of participants is ca 4500 in the first round, and ca 120 in the final.

Hungary hosted the 2nd Central-European Olympiad in Informatics (1995, Szeged, 11 countries), 8th Central-European Olympiad in Informatics (2001, Zalaegerszeg, 13 countries), 12nd Central-European Olympiad in Informatics (2005, Sárospatak, 13 countries)  and the 8th International Olympiad in Informatics (1996, Veszprém, 60 countries).
