Avogadro's Contest

How did you study for this contest if you have written it?

I have looked at the past exams, but they go back all the way down to 1993, so I can't finish them all. Any tips?

Just answer 6.02x10^23 for every question.

Haha, in all seriousness though, I've never heard of this. Is it a math contest?

It's a chemistry contest from Waterloo :P I'm not sure if they really consider it as much as they consider the Euclid contest but I'm still gonna write it haha

Honestly easy if you just know chem 11 (BC) thoroughly. On top of that, you might want to go search up some chemistry news (likely graphene). Last year there was a question on Californium? Something like that, I forget.

I think I got around 35/40 (I think I got around 4 wrong, and 0.25 off for every wrong answer)
I thought it was easier than last year's

That's awesome! Do you know what percentile I would be in if I had a score of 18 or 19/40?

I'm not sure...I asked the grade 12's at my school and they said none of them actually knew their actual scores, just their percentile (i.e. __th percentile)
