While this may change in the future, as of now students cannot register for competitions themselves. Registration and payments are only possible through a parent or teacher account.
Once parents / teachers have completed all the necessary steps, they will receive student login details, which need to be passed on to the student.
Each registration can include any number of students, but a parent/teacher account can only apply once per competition.
If multiples of 3 students are registered together, they will be put into teams of 3 in the same order as they were input. During registration, there is a box to input a team codeword (the more unique the better). Please coordinate with your team and ensure that everyone puts the same codeword. In the event that you do not have a team of at least 2 people, please leave the field blank. We will put you in a team!
The round timing and details are shared on the student dashboard near to the competiton date, and so participants need to log-in maybe a few days beforehand to familiarise themselves with the set-up and the schedule.
Individual Rounds will be individually completed by each participant, while Team Rounds will be completed by teams ('existing friends' or with the same residence / nationality)
Note: For WCC Contest 2 Participants, we use transcripts to denote Gold / Silver / Bronze awards. If you require a certificate for academic purposes, please email us!
Each contest consists of 6 rounds, which are grouped into the above categories as follows:
Participants sometimes think deeply alone, work in teams, be inspired by speakers and develop using their imagination!
This unique platform also enables participants to network and build lasting friendships - usually the main highlight of their schooling years.

The most important prizes to be had are the intangibles ones gained from such an experience. On top of that all participants receive a transcript of relative attainment, which identifies their strengths and areas of improvements.
