The British Biology Olympiad 2024

The BBO is open to students in post-16 education studying at school or college. The competition consisted of two, 45-minute multiple choice papers. Students were presented with topics and ideas which they were not familiar with, so will compete with their problem solving skills and understanding of core principles.

In addition to encouraging and rewarding pupils in their studies, the BBO is the first stage in selecting a team to represent the UK at the International Biology Olympiad (IBO). The IBO seeks to challenge by both theory and practical tests some of the top pre-university biology students in the world, with over sixty countries taking part.

Well done to Oviyaa Sivakumar (Bronze), Anna Neal (Highly commended), Caoimhe Ni Loingsigh (commended) and Jenna Ferguson who all participated.
