Two Sixth Form pupils finished within the top 5% of the UK to win gold medals in the 2022 British Biology Olympiad competition.
16 pupils across the Sixth Form took part in the nationwide, advanced problem-solving competition for A Level students. Designed to challenge those with an interest in Biology to expand their talents via two multiple choice papers sat online under exam conditions, the British Biology Olympiad requires students to use their biological intuition, logic and imagination to answer a series of questions.
Students were presented with topics and ideas which they were not familiar with, testing both their problem solving skills and their understanding of core Biology principles. With more than 10,000 students from 700 schools across Great Britain taking part this year, we are hugely proud of all our students who took part, and particular congratulations to Harrison Y and Oscar S who achieved bronze medals, and to Lydia H and Fergus G, the top performing students, who won gold medals for their impressive performances meaning they scored within the top 5% of all participants.
