The International Biology Olympiad 2020 was held online, instead of taking place in Japan’s Nagasaki city in mid-July as initially scheduled due to the complicated development of the COVID-19 pandemic. Vietnam joined the network at the Ha Noi University of Science, Vietnam National University.

The contestants take two theory tests (each for three hours) and two practical exercises including virtual experiments on Animal Physiology and Bioinformatics.

This achievement of the Vietnamese team is much better than in 2019 as Vietnam won one silver medal and three bronze medals.
