Harrow pupil George Reid has been selected to represent the UK at the International Geography Olympiad (iGeo) in Belgrade, Serbia, later this year. iGeo is an annual competition for the best 16 to 19 year old geography students from all over the world. Students chosen to represent their countries are the very best, selected from thousands of students who participate enthusiastically in their own National Geography Olympiads.
The iGeo consists of three parts: a written test, a multimedia test and substantial fieldwork requiring observation, leading to cartographic representation and geographical analysis. The programme also includes poster presentations by teams, cultural exchanges, and time for students to get to know their fellow students and explore the host city.
