Year 10 Compete In The Biology Challenge

06 May 2015

During March all of our students in year 10 sat the Biology Challenge, which is run by the Society of Biology in the UK, and we are pleased to announce some outstanding results.

  • Biology Challenge 2015

This competition allows students from around the world to compete against one another, testing their biological knowledge to the maximum against content from GCSEs, IGCSEs and the IB Middle Years Programme.

It is a world renowned event and is recognised by all noteworthy higher education institutions with Michael Reiss, Professor of Science Education at the Institute of Education commenting, “I’m a great admirer of all that the BBO (British Biology Olympiad) has achieved for school and college biology in the UK. The Biology Challenge now provides a wonderful opportunity to extend this to a younger age group. I support it unreservedly.”

This year a number of students were awarded medals in the competition reflecting the high level of understanding in Biology that this particular year group has achieved.

Special mentions go to Chelsea Ngan, Ze Yang Chen, Abhilasha Yadav, Damien Chan, Philip Vedin, Zhijie Jin, Milka Tuomaala and Laura Kelly who all achieved high medal placings. The challenge now passes to the current Year 9 students: will you be able to do even better next year?
