Andrew Zhou (Lyon's) and Pasa Suksmith (Elmfield) have both achieved Gold Awards in Round 1 of the Physics Olympiad, a national competition that encourages the study of physics and recognises excellence in young physicists.
Following a performance in the top 100, Andrew was invited to sit the Round 2 paper, in which he also obtained a Gold Award. This outstanding result is the best achieved by any Harrovian in recent memory.
Andrew also achieved a Gold Award in the British Astronomy and Astrophysics Olympiad. He has since been invited to attend training camps at Oxford University, at which a team will be selected for the international event this summer.
