Any national tournaments or tests?

Question:

I am in 10th grade and want to go to standford university. Besides aiming for a perfect on the SAT and ACT and community service and a relativly good GPA I was wondering if there are any national tournaments or olympiad that I could participate in like the National Chemistry Olympiad or any compition that would wow collages if I do?


Answer:

First of all, it would be good to learn to spell.





It is «Stanford» not «standford».





Do not think that you can get by with just a «relatively good» GPA. It must be as close to a 4.0 as possible. Actually, it should be a 4.0.





If you are just now considering entering the Olympiads such as the Physics, Math, Chemistry, and Biology, I would study hard. You’re underestimating your competition already. You have to be in top 20 to 50 kids in all of America in that certain subject. Can you do that? I wouldn’t say it’s impossible, but it’s certainly improbable.





If you still think that you want to put your time into doing Olympiads, here are the links.
