The British Biology Olympiad is designed to challenge and stimulate the most talented young biologists in the country, and is open to all post-16 students in the UK. There are three rounds to the competition, at the end of which the British team is selected to train for, and compete in, the International Biology Olympiad in Switzerland this July. Further information is available on www.ukbiologycompetitions.org.
Six of our pupils entered the Biology Olympiad this year, and we were delighted to hear that they all won awards in the first round: a 2-hour multiple choice paper that they sat in school (details below). One of our gold medallists, Anna Oleryinova (MSH UVI), had such a high score that she is now through to the second round and still has a chance to represent Britain at the International Final.
