Competition Documentation Extract

Students are allowed access of up to 20 sides of language notes/hints in the competition. We suggest this particular extract (with permission) from Coding Club Core-Cards* which we’ve combined with an overview for use of input(), some more helpful snippets and some blank pages at the back which should be completed before the competition if students wish to use these.

Further preparation

For some systematic preparation, students using Python may wish to look at:

* Chris Roffey’s excellent Coding Club Code-Cards can be printed for free. They can also be purchased in pocket book format:

If users have any similar suggestions for other languages, please let us know.

Competition Integration

We integrate with the UKCT Challenges competition progression pathway: please do find out more about the Bebras and Oxford Computing Challenges (which sit earlier in the pathway) and The British Informatics Olympiad which is the next step on for older students.
