Our International Biology Olympiad Star!

Our prefrontal cortex is lighting up here at Forest!

Resident Biology legend, Y13 Kez Ward, has been invited to join the UK Team at the International Biology Olympiad this July in Armenia. Endorsed by Nobel Prize winning scientists Sir Paul Nurse and Prof. Yoshinori Ohsumi, the IBO brings together the very best young minds from across the globe.https://www.ibo-info.org/en/

Now, this all sounds amazing enough on its own, but the competition was fierce and Kez smashed it. Here are some stats…

Over 10,000 pupils from more than 700 schools worldwide took part.

Only 5% of entrants were awarded a gold certificate (63.63% boundary).

Kez scored 81.2%!

Kez was then selected to attend the UK team selection final at Warwick University on the 10-13th April, in which he was successful in being selected for the UK team.

‘The IBO brings together the most gifted biology talents around the world.’
