Biology students at Palmer’s blitz highbrow exams

PALMER’Spalmbio Science students Emily Goldby and Samuel Keeley have received special recognition after performing fantastically during a series of tough online tests.

Both students were entered into the Society of Biology Olympiad 2014 just before Christmas and had to undergo a series of tests including a 90 question test online, completed in less than two hours, under supervision.

A2 student Emily was awarded a bronze medal for her efforts and has been invited to a classy awards ceremony at the Royal Society of Biology where she will get to meet Professor Alice Roberts, known for presenting BB2’s Wild Swimming and The Incredible Human Journey.

Emily has secured a place at The University of East Anglia to study Statistics.

Samuel also did well and achieved a commendable certificate. He is a first year student and is unsure of which career he wishes to pursue as he is studying AS Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Drama.

Mark Vinall, Principal of Palmer’s College said: “Congratulations to Emily and Samuel on their great success in the Society of Biology Olympiad 2014.”

This was the first time the College had entered the challenge and will most definitely be entering more students this year.
