Contestants are advised to arrive early before the competition starts.  About 30 min before the start of the competition, contestants will normally be allowed into the assigned venue.  A briefing will be provided before practical/lab work can commence.  Participants must ensure that all glassware is cleaned before they will be let out.  Expect about 20 min for cleaning.

Please note that participants should bring along a photo ID for identification, stationery, a scientific calculator, safety goggles* and lab coat*. You are advised to bring a ruler (30 cm), pen, pencil, eraser and stapler. Resources and unauthorised materials (such as communication devices) are strictly prohibited. All information needed to answer the questions (e.g. Periodic Table) will be provided.

If you are bringing in a graphic calculator, please clear the memory of the calculator based on the instructions here.

In this round, we do take into account of laboratory techniques as well as student's awareness of safety in the laboratory.  Penalties will be given for those who do not observe safety guidelines or are not using appropriate laboratory techniques.  Some examples of penalties are given in this file.

Safety Rules for SJChO Round 2:
1) Students must be properly attired in school uniform and covered shoes. For girls, the skirt should be knee-length. Shorts are not allowed.
2) Long hair must be tied.
3) All students should also bring along a pair of safety goggles*, which will be worn throughout the length of the experiment.  Students are also encouraged to bring and wear a laboratory coat* while in the laboratory.
4) Glassware should be handled carefully to prevent injury. Students will be asked to pay for breakages and therefore advised to bring cash for this purpose.
5) Students are required to follow the standard safety precautions as well as any specific instructions listed on the question paper or given by the invigilators closely.

*You are strongly encouraged to bring your own lab coat and safety goggles for better comfort.  For those who do not own a lab coat or safety goggles, they will be provided.
