Biology Olympiad 2020 Results

Achievements, General, News, Senior School, STEM

A number of keen Putney students recently competed in the 2019 (now 2020) Biology Challenge run by the Royal Society of Biology. The competition was open to year 9 and 10 students, consisting of two, twenty-five-minute multiple choice papers taken online under exam conditions.

The questions were based on the school curriculum, but also rewarded those students whose knowledge of the subject has been increased by reading books and magazines, watching natural history programmes, taking notice of the news media for items of biological interest, and are generally aware of the UK’s natural flora and fauna.

The Results

Congratulations to the following students for receiving Gold (top 5%), Silver and Bronze awards in the recent Biology Olympiad:

Gold award winner: Alice A (Year 10)

Silver award winners: Annie J-M (Year 10), Isabel A (Year 10), Keri H (Year 10)

Bronze award winners: Anna F (Year 10), Grace L (Year 10), Liv C (Year 10), Emma A (Year 10), Ghazal E-O (Year 9)

A large number of students also received Highly Commended and Commended awards for their level of achievement. Well done to all those students who took up the Biology Challenge in 2019!
