Fifteen Chemistry students were selected to enter the University of Cambridge Year 12 Chemistry Challenge this year. Nationally there were a total of 4296 entries into this year's competition and about 60% received certificates for their performance.
Less than 1% of all students won roentgenium awards and although no BRGS students scored highly enough to be in this elite category, they produced some fantastic results.
Of the 286 students winning gold awards, four were BRGS students;
624 students won silver awards (six from BRGS)
and 1620 students won copper awards (four from BRGS).
Miss Heather Bowden, Head of Chemistry plans to make this an annual event and is anticipating further future success. Asanish Kalyanasundaram was just five marks short of the roentgenium award and is only in Year 11!
