Three Salopian Upper Sixth students have won medals in the First Round of the British Biology Olympiad. Almost 4,000 of the top Biology students across the country took part in this multiple choice test that is taken online, in schools.
- Stephen Li (Rt) Gold medal
- Chris Williams (I) Silver medal
- Thomas Marshall (SH) Silver medal
The aim of the British Biology Olympiad is to challenge and stimulate gifted students with an interest in Biology to expand and extend their talents. In offering a wider syllabus than A-level, it allows gifted students to demonstrate their knowledge and to be suitably rewarded and publicly recognised by the award of medals, certificates and other prizes. It is hoped that competing in the Olympiad will encourage students already interested in this valuable, wide-ranging and rewarding subject to continue their study beyond A-level.
The top four students will go on to represent the UK at the International Biology Olympiad in Singapore, in July.
