Academic Marathon Competition


Just before the Seollal holidays, a number of our Year 12 students chose to take part in the Academic Marathon Online Competition in Biology and Physics. Within a timeframe of two hours, students had to solve as many subject-specific questions as possible within their chosen science subject.

Competing against schools with larger student populations, we held our own and our Physics team came 2nd globally in the ‘Physithon’ thanks to the tireless efforts of our students. Special mention must go to the following students, who gained enough points individually to achieve specific awards:

Jaehoon J - Global 8th place in the Physithon

Erland S - Global 12th place in the Physithon

Jack L - Global 16th place in the Physithon

Daniel C - Global 17th place in the Biothon

The Physithon Team: Jaehoon J, Ga-Eun K, Jack L, Erland S, Jackson W, Kevin Y - Global 2nd place for the team

Well done to all of our students who took part and embraced the competition enthusiastically. It served as a valuable opportunity to review their science knowledge while competing in a fun and lighthearted manner.
