BRITISH ENGLISH OLYMPICS - COMPETE AGAINST THE BEST - BEO World Championship
COM PE T I T I O N STAG ES
As the contest moves forward, the winners
remain… until only one school is left.

The following competition structure is based on 6 competition
campuses and 120 schools competing in total. As the number of
schools competing changes every year, the numbers at each stage
also change slightly to accommodate this. However, from the
structure below you will see the outline of how the contest works.

                                          First Round             • 150 SCHOOLS

                           At each of our 6 campuses, 20 schools will compete in all 7 academic events.
