Success in British Physics Olympiad

Tue, Jan 18th, 2022
Worth School

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.
