Australian National Titration Competition - South Australian section 

SA Titration Competition 2021


The RACI runs two titration competitions:

  • Regional Titration Competitions for high school students, which feed into the Australian National Titration Competition and
  • National Titration Challenge which is for teachers, science technicians and all those involved in the secondary or tertiary teaching of chemistry to students.

This website contains information on the SA Regional Titration Competition. Entry to the 2021 SA Titration Competition can be made here. 


About the SA Competition


The RACI Chemical Analysis competition is available in each state and territory of Australia. Each state runs the stages prior to the national level competition in slightly different ways.

In South Australia there are 3 phases – firstly a school phase which runs in schools during term 2, and successful teams from this phase are invited to compete in the State final in August (early term 3). Success in the state final leads to the National final (later term 3).

To become involved in the SA competition, teachers will need to talk with their year 12 and year 11 Chemistry students to see if they wish to form teams of three to participate in the competition. The teacher or lab manager should oversee the school phase.

Once the number of teams is known, contact 
Ian McMahon via SMS (0402775517) or email ([email protected]) to register the school’s interest by providing that number. This notification should occur by the third week of May each year.

School managers, after requesting samples for a specific number of teams, must also register that same number of teams using this link Payments are online only.

The fee per team is now $10 (previously $8 having been unchanged for 10 years).

In the past, paper results have been sent by post. This is now costly and slow. Our recommendation is for the scanning of a team's results - using the 2 sides for 1 page facility (reducing to A5) which reduces file sizes - is quite acceptable, and sending the file(s) to Ian McMahon
