Sixth Form Boys Complete Cambridge Chemistry Challenge
A number of our Sixth Form boys have successfully completed the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge.
Aakash Dharmaraj and Alex Edey both achieved a Gold certificate, placing them in the top 9% of more than 7,000 entrants across the country. Congratulations also go to Ethan Horspool, who was awarded Silver certificate and to Rohan Suresh, Chris Moustaka and Temuulen Enkhee, who all achieved a Copper certificate.
The competition aims to stretch and challenge students interested in chemistry, providing an excellent experience for anyone considering taking their studies further.
Set by an experienced team of teachers and university chemists, it is accessible to Year 12 students but takes them significantly beyond the syllabus and encourages them to think about science in the way they would at university.
The boys attended TENDO sessions where many practice questions were tackled, following which they endured a challenging 90-minute written paper to achieve the award.
