    The Mark Scheme was given to the schools on Friday morning. I'll give it a little less than a month before we hear anything about what we got. Last year I heard back late February early march.
    Thank you! Good luck

    Most likely a low silver. Do you know where to find the boundaries? My teacher just gave us our raw marks

    Its most probably a high silver. And u can find grade boundaries of past years by checking past years examiners reports. It has grade boundaries on the last page, be aware of difference in max marks as they change every year. Well done though a excellent result.

    Easily a silver, potentially low gold too.

    I think that generally if you're in the 30's you should receive a silver and possibly gold. This years paper was out of 75 - this is the same as the 2015 chem olympiad. In 2015, the grade boundaries were: 14-21 for bronze, 22-37 for silver and 38+ for a gold. This should give you a guideline, give or take a few marks, for where your score is!

    It is first and only time I've done the Olympiad, but I did last years under timed conditions as practice
