Bonus Questions (Open-ended discussions)
Bonus Questions are discussions specifically designed to provoke competitors to think about the role that science plays in the way we acquire knowledge. It's important to mention that there are no 'correct' or 'incorrect' answers as everyone thinks in different ways. However, to achieve the highest marks, students should aim to elaborate and explain their ideas and support them with arguments. In other words, you should tell us why you think what you think! Please make sure your awnsers are written in the language you selected in the registration form (the one you'll be taking the exam in).
