After completing Round One of the British Physics Olympiad it was announced that physics enthusiast and Year 13 student Callum had achieved a Top Gold Award, a fantastic result which enabled him to compete in Round Two of this prestigious science competition.
Shortly after completing a demanding three hour paper, during which time Callum tackled questions on gravitation and electromagnetism, his extensive knowledge and passion for the subject was rewarded with a second Gold Award. Further still Callum finished in the top 15 nationally, earning himself an invitation to the University of Oxford in early April to undergo training in theory and experimental work. Training complete, competition organisers will then select five students to represent Britain at the International Physics Olympiad, held in Indonesia in July.
As Callum prepares for his visit to Oxford we wish him the very best of luck.
“It is a highly commendable achievement for Callum and we wish him every success in April and hopefully July!” Blue Coat British Physics Olympiad coordinator, Mr Caulkin MBE
