    Hey guys,

    What are you top tips to prepare for biology olympiad? Do universities value experience in such competitions?
    I have been looking at biolympiads.com and ukbiologycompetitions.org to get more info, but for British bio olympiad I could not find the curriculum.
    Thank you!

    Read ahead, and ask your teacher for notes of later topics. Many questions will ask about topics you have not yet covered in class. I would also just do some general reading on wikipedia or whatever around different topics. But, if you're a logical thinker, you can answer a lot of questions without reading around the subject, like I did. I would say universities do value such competitions, although I did not list my experience on my personal statement; it depends on the degree you pursue.
