The paper was incredibly difficult, covering material both in IB Chemistry and other syllabi, along with content that could be covered in Maths or Physics. Despite the difficulty, our students performed incredibly well.
Candidates who achieved an award are listed below and should be congratulated on their performance in this particularly challenging event.
- Hyun Jin Kim - Gold
- Sung Joon Kim - Silver
- Lim Young Hoon – Silver
- Jeffrey Formen - Silver
- Max Rudolf – Bronze
- Yu Ri Lee – Bronze
Special mention should go to Hyun Jin Kim in Year 12 who managed to secure a Gold award with a score that would put him in the top 1% of the UK entries.
Hyun Jin also secured a Gold award in the Biology Olympiad earlier in the year and as such has been invited to attend a course in the UK this summer run by the Field Studies Council, an environmental education charity providing informative opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to discover, explore, and understand the environment. The Field Studies Council has supported the British Biology Olympiad by providing our top students with additional inspiration through their course to learn more about biology and in particular ecology.
