Can we change the seat from an English committee into a Chinese one?
No delegate shall change the seat before or after the release of the Seat Distribution. If you are not satisfied with the distributed seat, you can renounce the seat by contacting the Liaisons before the application deadline (Immediate Effect). Seats that fail to register before the deadline, will automatically be considered as abandoned.
If my school gets one seat in a double-delegation committee, should we send one student or two?
In BIMUN, one seat refers to one delegate/person. In this sense, if you get one seat in a double-delegation committee, you can only send one delegate instead of two delegates to attend the conference.
If my school gets two seats in a double-delegation committee, will these two delegates automatically represent one country or entity?
The Secretariat of BIMUN will take that situation into consideration when allocating the seats of the committee, but this will NOT definitely happen.
If one delegate of our school cannot turn up due to some urgent matter, can we send another delegate to replace him or her? Or, is there a refund for the registration fee?
Generally speaking, it is not encouraged to change a delegate, especially after we have completed the allocation of seats for each committee. Delegates should inform he Liaisons as soon as possible if they de facto cannot participate. If the delegate changing happened after the Representative Card made up, the cost will be charged. For the policy of registration fee refunding, please check the Payment Policy.
However, it is necessary and crucial that delegates inform the Liaisons of their withdrawal. Otherwise, it will influence the future eligibility for BIMUN of your school.
Can my school have more seats or a larger quota of delegates?
BIMUN is an invitation-only conference. The Secretariat has long been evaluating and trying to balance the number of seats for each school. In principle, NO extra seats will be allocated to the schools that are already invited. It is acceptable, however, to send applications to the Liaisons if your school requires more seats at the conference. Please note, with limited seats available, only a few schools would have an extra quota of delegates provided that other schools gave up their seats.
Can I know how many seats other schools have?
Information about any other schools attending BIMUN is deemed confidential.
If one of our delegates fails to attend the conference, can we give the seat to another school?
BIMUN prohibits any private exchange of seats between schools. Any private exchange of seats won’t be recognized by BIMUN. The staff will check the student ID to identify which school the delegate represents at the registration desk.
