Twenty-five students took part in the Biology Challenge on Wednesday 13th March 2019. The Biology Challenge is an online competition run by the Royal Society of Biology which tests students’ knowledge based on what they have been taught in lessons and their additional knowledge which may have been acquired through watching Biology programmes, the news and reading scientific magazines and books.
Students spent sufficient time preparing for the competition by revising and working through two Biology Challenge past papers. By the end of the competition students had answered one hundred and ten questions split across two Biology papers. Six students performed exceptionally well with one student achieving 78/110 which was fantastic!
It was an exciting opportunity for our students and it was great to see that so many of them willingly pushed themselves out of their comfort zone.
