Intermediate Biology Olympiad Success

A group of Year 12 Biology students took part in the Intermediate Biology Olympiad.

The competition is open to students in the first year of post-16 education anywhere in the world and administered by the Royal Society of Biology. Over 8000 students worldwide took part in this year's competition.

The competition stimulates students’ curiosity for the natural world and encourages them to take an interest in Biology outside of school. All the students did superbly well and are commended for their efforts.

Furthermore, Theodore Ph. and Isabel F. achieved bronze awards placing them amongst the top 30% of students in the world), and Filip Cristian S. and Anna T. achieved  gold awards (placing her amongst the top 5% of students in the world).

Congratulations to all the students who took on the challenge. All students who have taken part in this year’s Biology Challenge competition are now eligible to a free year of BioNet membership, which provides them with electronic subscription to The Biologist magazine and e-newsletters featuring bioscience-related news and events. Students who took part in the Intermediate Biology Olympiad are encouraged to reference their participation in their further/higher education applications.

Next academic year there will be even more opportunities in Science to take part in a number of international competitions which we encourage all students to take part in.
