Intermediate Biology Olympiad success

Tuesday 17 September 2019

Shrewsbury School biologists have achieved impressive results in the Royal Society of Biology Intermediate Olympics.

The competition is open to students around the world in their first year of post-16 education. Its aim is both to test their knowledge of biology but also to encourage them to continue studying the biosciences beyond school.

The competition consists of a one-hour multiple choice paper taken online under exam conditions. Gold certificates are awarded to the top-scoring 5.3% of students, silver to the next 10.3%, bronze to the next 14.8% and highly commended and commended to the next 13.6% and 15% respectively.
