Biologists take up the challenge
30 June 2017
Girls from Year 10 took part in the Big Biology Quiz which was held at the University of Birmingham.
The annual competition, which took place on Monday 26 June, is a general knowledge biological quiz, run by the University of Birmingham as part of their Outreach programme. The quiz, which aims to raise pupils' motivation and improve their grades, saw teams from several West Midlands schools compete in quick-fire question rounds across a wide range of subjects including microbes and dinosaurs.
Although the girls did not win the competition they did well and are to be congratulated on their performance and enthusiasm. Well done to Zaineb Al-Ani, Asmita Chaudhari, Halima Haroon, Mandeep Karlcut, Jae-Eun Lee, Davina Mahgerefteh, Mila Manindhar, Louisa Maynard, Sophie Morton, Leena Medani, Anya Oates and Mamta Sohal.
