AILO 2015 Round 1 set for 2nd February in Schools all over the Island

Round 1 of the All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) will take place on Monday 2nd February 2015 in secondary schools all over Ireland, North and South. The first round will be an individual paper, held in your own school, that will take 2 hours in exam conditions. Schools and individual students can still register this week at to receive the Round 1 paper.

Both the Junior category (15 and under) and Senior category will do the same individual paper. This gives all students the opportunity to qualify for the AILO Final and represent Ireland at the International Linguistics Olympiad (IOL). However, the students will be marked within their peer group and we will have prizes for the winners of both Round 1 categories.

The results will indicate which 100 students will be invited to the AILO Final in Dublin City University on Tuesday 24th March 2015. From the final, four students will be selected to represent Ireland at the International Linguistics Olympiad in Bulgaria 20-24 July 2015.
