Some of our Year 13 Physics students took part in the Y13 Challenge Paper from the British Physics Olympiad last week.
The paper is based on the common curriculum for Year 13 students. It involves problem-solving and contains questions that relate to A level (or equivalent) topics, but it is not A level exam preparation. It is to stretch thinking into the applications and ideas rather than to keep to the content of the syllabus, preparing students for further work, or for interview practice.
All students achieved a certificate for their efforts and Jack Crosthwaite did well enough to achieve a Merit.
Well done to all!
