In the run up to this year’s British Physics Olympiad, twenty six Year 13 physicists attended a series of after School workshops. Each session provided students with an opportunity to build their knowledge and confidence by tackling the competition’s demanding past paper questions, in preparation for the A2 Challenge paper.
Sixteen students scored more than 40% and were invited to sit the three hour long Round 1 paper in mid November. They attended further training sessions and worked through numerous past paper questions to fine tune their physics problem solving ability.
We are very pleased to report that Rujun Huang and Ben Silva secured the competition’s prestigious Gold Award, in addition to this seven students achieved Bronze Awards, with a further seven receiving Commendation Awards.
We would like to congratulate all those who took part and wish them the very best of luck as they continue to develop their knowledge and understanding of physics.
