The Schools' Analyst Competition is a national competition run by the RSC's Analytical Division for first year sixth form students studying AS level Chemistry or equivalent. The Analytical Division’s Regions hold heats, generally during March and April, to select a team or teams, to go through to the National Final. Each team comprises three students. We anticipate that all of the Division’s Regions will be holding one or more heats for the 2007 competition.
The Final of the Competition sees up to 16 teams competing for a Challenge Shield. First, Second and Third placed teams in the National Final receive prizes of £750, £500 and £250 respectively with the other finalists receiving £100 each. There are also prizes for the individual team members of the first and runner-up teams.
