2021/22 Timeline

The AILO season runs from September 2021 to March 2022 (with the International Olympiad planned for the Isle of Man in July 2022).

We provide sample sets from September to January. We also provide free workshops (hopefully back in school) but these will also be available online too. You can try last year’s workshop materials, with video solutions. To sign up for this year’s workshops, please register for AILO.
