Congratulations to all Priestley’s medalists in the British Physics Olympiad Senior Challenge competition.
Three students achieved a silver medal and another three earned bronze.
The Senior Physics Challenge for Year 12 students is an opportunity for students to stretch their problem solving skills and apply fundamental physical principles to novel situations. This year 5,300 students from 380 schools participated.
The AS Challenge is a single, one-hour paper that provides an excellent tool to assess and challenge students’ ability to work at a high level in Key Stage 5 and beyond.
It consists of several short questions followed by one or two longer questions that test only core subject knowledge and application.
