The TCS Oxford Computing Challenge has been created by TCS and Oxford University. It is an invitation event that aims to encourage students who have achieved a top 10% score in the UK BEBRAS Challenge to develop their skills further and produce programmed solutions to computational thinking problems. We have 8 students who are within the top 10% achievers in the country and have been given their invitations. We are exceptionally proud of their achievement.
