About SJPO

The Singapore Junior Physics Olympiad is the most prestigious physics competition in Singapore for students aged 13 - 16 (Sec 1 - Sec 4/IP1 - IP4). It is supported by the Ministry of Education, Singapore and the Institute of Physics, Singapore, and consists of two parts:

Consisting of 50 MCQ questions, each with 5 options, the SJPO is designed to test an individual student's ability to apply physics concepts to solve physics problems in a closed book environment.

Students are able to take part in this round in groups of up to 5. It is a completely open book competition, where any and all external resources including computational tools for problem solving are allowed. The intention of the competition is to tests students' ability to solve new problems that require large amounts of creative thinking.

If a student chooses to take part in the Singapore Junior Physics Olympiad, they must take part in both - there is no choice to pick only one.

Sec 4 / IP 4 Individual Round Gold medalists will be eligible for a selection test for the European Physics Olympiad, which sends 5 students as part of our National Team.
