NSW Schools Titration Competition


The aim of the competition is to accurately determine the unknown concentration of an acid by using titration techniques. The performance of a team is determined by its total score which is a sum of the scores achieved by each of the team members. The closer a team member is to determining the correct concentration the lower the score. Thus, lower scores are better.

The following may be received from the competition:

- a medal or pin for each member of the winning team at a venue

- a certificate of Excellence for a team with a score of 100 or less

- a certificate of Merit for a team score of between 100 and 200

- a certificate of Participation for a team score greater than 200.

In addition, a team with outstanding performance may be invited to the prestigious Royal Australian Chemical Institute National Titration Competition.
