Applications Olympiad: introduction of a second round

2017 Computer Applications Olympiad sees the introduction of a Second Round.  The Olympiad is for CAT learners, ICDL candidates and others who are computer literate.

Being able to use computer applications is fast becoming essential for study and work. Applications help learners to make sense of data and to strengthen insight. The Computer Applications Olympiad encourages learners to see the bigger picture where: Data à Information à Knowledge à Insight.

This is why the SA Computer Olympiad has made Round 1 of the Applications Olympiad more accessible and interesting around the theme of popular music. The one-hour Olympiad runs at participating schools from 8 to 12 May at any convenient time. It costs nothing to enter. The questions test learners’ skills to make sense of data in different formats: word processing, spreadsheets, databases and presentations. The Applications Olympiad is for learners who have a working knowledge of these common applications, including those who take CAT or IT at school.
