Stockton Sixth Form is delighted to receive recognition from The British Biology Olympiad of the success of some of our most talented scientists, Alex Cardill (Ex-Ian Ramsey) – Highly Commended, Christine Uchendu (Ex-English Martyrs School) – Highly Commended, Harley McCarten (Ex-Outwood Academy Bishopsgarth) – Silver Award, Oscar Solis (Ex-Our Lady & St Bede Catholic Academy) – Silver Award & Patricia Laptian (Ex-Our Lady & St Bede Catholic Academy) – Silver Award.

The British Biology Olympiad (BBO) is open to students predicted A*/A at A Level and consists of two, 45-minute exam papers. The BBO challenges and stimulates students with an interest in biology to expand and extend their talents by demonstrating their knowledge and skills in tackling biological problems, and experiments.

In bringing together gifted students, like Alex, Christina, Harley, Oscar & Patricia, the BBO competition tries to challenge and stimulate these students to expand their talents and to promote their career as scientists.
