Tenay, Aisha and Moeeza excel in Cambridge University Biology Challenge

Year 12 Biology A-Level students have been competing in the Cambridge University - Homerton Biology Challenge. They have submitted work linked to tasks such as 'Why do animals not have wheels?', 'Are Humans still evolving?' and 'What is the most complex organism in your local area?'.

Congratulations go to Tenay, Aisha and Moeeza who are currently in 8th position out of 450 teams across the UK. 

'The Homerton Biology Challenge was an incredibly rewarding experience for me and my friends to showcase our passion for biology and expand our knowledge. In addition, it gave us an insight into how life would be like at university- producing essays and doing individual research. 

These challenges pushed me to think critically and creatively, fostering a deeper understanding of biological principles beyond the classroom.

When it comes to submission, the possibilities are endless. You can write an essay, create a video or even compose a poem; there is something for everyone- whether you are a writer, scientist, or even a performer.

Moreover, the competition fostered a sense of camaraderie amongst participants. Interacting with peers from diverse backgrounds and regions allowed me to gain new perspectives and insights into biology. Therefore, it not only tested my knowledge and skills in biology but also provided an enriching platform to engage with like-minded individuals passionate about the subject.

The feedback received post-competition was invaluable. It highlighted areas for improvement and reinforced my strengths, encouraging me to continue pursuing my interest in biology.

Overall, the Homerton Biology Challenge was an exceptional opportunity to display my interest for biology and connect with a community of fellow enthusiasts. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to challenge themselves and further explore the fascinating world of biology.'
