Physics Olympiad


Physics Olympiad

The British Physics Olympiad is a prestigious annual competition run by Oxford University. It consists of very demanding questions that require students to think beyond the constraints of A level Physics specifications, thus it is aimed at the most able students. It is an excellent preparation for those applying to the top universities for Physics or Engineering.

CTC has frequently taken part in this competition and has achieved considerable successes, including the coveted gold award last year, obtained by Zhisheng Mao, now studying Physics with Theoretical Physics at Imperial College, London.

This year, congratulations go to the three students sat the examination papers and obtained the following results:

  • Iurii MAKSYMETS Bronze I
  • Ilja ISKOVS Bronze II
  • Haoming WANG Commendation

Next month, some first-year A-level CTC students will take part in the AS Physics Challenge.
