Five of our A-Level Physics students challenged themselves by signing up for Round 1 of the British Physics Olympiad. This consisted of two exam papers, including a set of short answer questions and several long answer thematic questions. They require students to solve problems and challenge their abilities to apply their knowledge and skills. Students showed a profound depth of development, skill at the subject, and a determination to solve hard physics problems.
About two and a half thousand students participate in the competition annually. The paper is a challenge with a very tall ladder of skill, ability and preparedness.
We are very proud of these students for entering the competition and challenging themselves.
- Isabelle Hall achieved a Commendation
- Lewis Hacking and Oliver Fields each achieved a Bronze-2 award
- Katie Baker and Samuel Marsh both did very well to achieve Bronze-1 awards
Keep up the hard work!
