    May 2019 - British Physics Olympiad Competitions

    Angela (Y11) won a GOLD medal recently in the British Physics Olympiad Competition. Angela placed 11th in the UK out of 2,200 entrants.

    Other students who competed were awarded a range of Medals and Commendations, these included:

    • Imogen (Y13) - Bronze I
    • Benton (Y13) - Commendation
    • Sam (Y13) - Commendation
    • Ben (Y12) - Silver
    • Elizabeth (Y12) - Silver
    • Adam (Y12) - Bronze
    • Scott (Y12) - Bronze
    • Angela (Y11) - GOLD
    • Emily (Y11) - Bronze I
    • Natalie (Y11) Commendation

    The British Physics Olympiad Competition is the ultimate challenge for Physics students. The questions that students face are a big step above the GCSE or A Level course that they are studying. To be successful you need bags of talent, resilience and determination. All students who took part from QEGS spent hours at home preparing and met every Monday lunchtime with Mr Metcalf for 2 terms or more Physics problem solving (and cake tasting). Medalists on the Olympiads often go on to Russell group and Oxbridge Universities to study STEM subjects.

    Well done to all involved, you are all #QEGSAmazing.
