The British Biology Olympiad challenges and stimulates students with an interest in biology to expand and extend their talents. It enables students to demonstrate their talent and to be suitably rewarded with publicly recognised certificates and medals.
The BBO is open to students in post-16 education studying at school or college. The competition consists of two, 45-minute multiple choice papers to be taken online under staff supervised exam conditions because of Covid restrictions. Students will be presented with topics and ideas which they are not familiar with, so will compete with their problem solving skills and understanding of core principals.
This year, 10 students took part in this event, with 6 of them reaching award status.
