I am looking to apply for Oxford Biology and o recently did the Intermediate Biology Olympiad and got a bronze. Is this good enough to mention? Should I mention that I was one mark from a silver?

Hola Treetop221,

More than 6,500 students from over 70 countries competed in the IBO! Only around 50% get one of five grades and you got a bronze - well done! For sure, we would mention it.

Thank you for your help! We weren't told my much about it so I had no idea how good a bronze actually was! I'm glad you were able to clarify it for me 😁

As Brasenose College Admissions Team, certainly include that in your personal statement. If you have any further question, do ask on here and someone can help.

Is it mentioned anywhere what the different "grades" are and what you need to get each of them? I can't find them anywhere.
