Maya Wins The Oxford Scientist Schools Competition for Years 12/13
We were thrilled to hear recently that our former student Maya S has won The Oxford Scientist Schools Competition for Years 12/13 for her entry submitted in the last academic year.
The nationwide competition runs once a term led by an Oxford University Society, Students and judged by Oxford University professors. The panel said they thoroughly enjoyed reading her ‘excellent submission’ on To what extent is Art important to scientists? which passed with flying colours in each of the five rounds of assessment. The essay will be placed online in the coming weeks as a top essay here.
The organisers hosted a Zoom/Teams Call for the Overall Winner and Runner-ups to provide written feedback from the judges including a Nobel Prize-winning marker – Sir Peter Ratcliffe. Maya is to be congratulated on her work among hundreds of high quality submissions.
