British Biology Olympiad

Over 50 biologists in SFC1 and SFC2 recently volunteered to take part in the British Biology Olympiad. This competition is designed by the Society of Biology, and challenges Sixth Form students around the country to expand their biological knowledge and understanding. The competition consisted of two, 45-minute multiple-choice papers, and the girls competed against over 7,000 students nationwide.

An amazing 32 students were Highly Commended or Commended, and 15 girls achieved a Bronze Medal, which is an excellent achievement. Alex and Sophie gained impressive Silver Awards, and particular congratulations should go to Jenny, who achieved an outstanding Gold Award in the competition.
