Competitive Format

Academic Marathon 2024 encompasses two formats: the One-Way Exam and the Academic Hackathon.

A 120-minute exam comprised entirely of multiple-choice questions.

One-Way Exam

Craft an academic essay on a designated topic within 2 weeks. 

Academic Hackathon

The Qualifying Round solely features the One-Way Exam. The Continental Round includes both the One-Way Exam and the Academic Hackathon, while the International Round is dedicated exclusively to the Academic Hackathon.


One-Way Exam

The One-Way Exam is a new format introduced by AM in 2024 to enhance the competitive experience, building on the foundation of past exams. It is characterized primarily by two features: Single-Direction Progress and Real-Time Scoring.

Single-Direction Progress

Students must adhere to a predetermined sequence for answering questions, with no option to skip or revisit previously answered questions for modifications.


Real-Time Scoring

Upon submitting an answer, it is instantly evaluated for correctness, and the score is recorded. Correct responses contribute to the score, while incorrect ones result in corresponding deductions.

Academic Hackathon Explained

The Academic Hackathon challenges students to explore cutting-edge topics within the discipline and present their insights in the form of an academic essay.


The topics for the Academic Hackathon will be released two weeks in advance, allowing all participating contestants two weeks to complete their respective essays. Participants are required to submit their essays through specified means before the deadline. The submission details will be announced along with the topics.
