International Academic Competitions is pleased to announce a new addition to its annual Middle School and Elementary School National Championships – the IAC National Championship Exams. The exams will be offered on various fields of history, science, and political science as explained below. Ambitious Middle School and Elementary School students are also welcome to compete in the Junior Varsity Division of the exams which are offered at JV Nationals in Arlington, VA in April for any younger students who attend that event (though the questions will be written at a challenging high school level of difficulty).
A complete schedule of exams and all other events at IAC National Championships can be found on the relevant page of our Nationals website here. Past exams can be found here.
Each exam will consist of 75 multiple choice questions with each correct answer worth 2 points, an incorrect response worth -1 point, and an answer left blank worth 0 points. The time limit will be 30 minutes for each exam. Ties will be broken through 3 tiebreaker questions with numerical answers. Each exam costs $20 and students will be ranked against other students in their age division (Middle School & Elementary).
