Royal Society of Biology Competitions

Biology 18 250wThis year has seen many of our students compete in UK wide Biology competitions organised by the Royal Society of Biology.

The Biology Olympiad is open to students in S6, challenging and stimulating students with an interest in biology to expand and extend their talents. It enables students to demonstrate their knowledge and to be suitably rewarded with publicly recognised certificates and medals.

From the Advanced Higher class 7 achieved an award, including one L6 student. Three were commended, Anna P and Anna M were highly commended, with Kary and Anushka (L6) being awarded Bronze medals and certificates.

The Biology Challenge stimulates students’ curiosity for the natural world and encourages them to take an interest in biology outside of school.

Biology Challenge is open to students aged 12-15 years old. Questions are based on the school curriculum, but the competition also rewards those students whose knowledge of the subject has been increased by reading books and magazines, watching natural history programmes, taking notice of the news media for items of biological interest, and are generally aware of our natural flora and fauna.

The whole Lower 5 took part, along with a couple of Upper 4 students.
