Does anyone know what score you need to qualify for the Nation Chemistry Olympiad exam?

Sadly, they do not publish (they're actually super secretive) about the percentages needed on each section to enter the camp.

Qualifying scores for the National Exam vary from region to region because each region can only send the top X number of students from the Local Exam to take the National Exam. Consequently, there will be hypercompetitive regions such as California and New Jersey (in which you'll need to have a ridiculously high Local exam score to qualify) and fairly uncompetitive regions like Wyoming (I heard that one of the National Finalists a few years ago automatically qualified to take the National Exam no matter how he did on Locals because he and his friend were the only interested students in the region).

Wyoming rules!

56/60 for some schools.  Ask what was the cut-off for you school in previous years.

There is no top 50 cut off, but the top 150 MC cut off is around 43/60
