Applications for NCSS 2015 (Sunday 4th to Tuesday 13th January) will open in September.

Eligibility and Selection Criteria

NCSS applications will be accepted from students who will complete Year 11 in 2014, and from exceptionally gifted Year 10 students. Selection of students will be based on academic performance, particularly in the subjects of mathematics and science, and demonstrated interest in computing. Personal qualities, such as community service, and social and teamwork skills will also be taken into consideration.

No prior knowledge of computing is assumed. Students who are not taking computing units of study at school are eligible to apply. Rest assured that students who enter the program as proficient programmers will also find plenty of material to extend their skills.
