I did the Intermediate Biology Olympiad (got bronze) last year and the British Biology Olympiad (highly commended) this year but I'm not actually sure what the classifications mean and how many get each of them.

I think the order of certificates is:

Commended
Highly commended
Bronze
Silver
Gold

If you don't understand what I mean, the senior maths challenge makes it clear awards are given to the top 60% in a 3:2:1 ratio of bronze:silver:gold. I'm basically want to know that for the biology olympiads, if the information is available.

If you go to their official website, I think you will find some past papers and how many you should get for each classification is right there. I've attached the grade threshold for 2020 below. Hope it helps!
