Student Success In The RSC Chemistry Olympiad
Designed to challenge and inspire, the UK Chemistry Olympiad is a national chemistry competition run by the Royal Society Of Chemistry.
Hosted annually, it is aimed at students in the Sixth Form and offers a unique opportunity for chemistry students to develop their thinking and problem-solving skills and test their existing knowledge of chemistry in situations from the real-world.
The results of this year’s competition have just been received and all three Upper Sixth students who took part in the 2021 Chemistry Olympiad have achieved a certificate. Lauren Mason and Alex Rejali are awarded Silver certificates (Lauren was just two marks off a Gold), placing them in the top 23% of all the participants. Lizzie Ridd was just one mark off a Bronze and received a well-earned participation certificate. The Princethorpe trio faced tough national competition and we congratulate them all on their excellent results.
