Girls in the Upper 6 Advanced Higher Biology class took part in the annual British Biology Olympiad. The British Biology Olympiad challenges and stimulates students with an interest in biology to expand and extend their talents. It enables students to demonstrate their talent and to be suitably rewarded with publicly recognised certificates and medals.
The British Biology Olympiad is open to students across the UK in post-16 education studying at school or college. The competition consisted of two, 45-minute multiple choice papers, where students were presented with topics and ideas which they were not familiar with, so compete with their problem-solving skills and understanding of core principals.
We were delighted that the following awards were made:
Teddy H - Silver Medal
Mingfei D - Highly Commended
Anna R-K - Highly Commended
Amy G - Commended
Anna G - Commended
