Five Year 13 Physics students achieved excellent results when taking part in the British Physics Olympiad run by Oxford University.
The British Physics Olympiad is a set of competitions to encourage the study of Physics and to recognise excellence in young physicists. There are five competitions a year: preparatory competitions for Years 10, 11 and 12 which Worth students will take part in this term; an experimental competition by former students; and the main competition which was held in November.
About 2,000 students across the country took on the physics questions which are on A Level content but are generally a more investigative style. Less than 10% of entrants achieved over 50% and the average mark was 25%.
The five Worth students performed superbly. One received a commendation, three received a bronze award and one achieved an amazing silver award.
Well done to all five students.
