It tests problem solving skills and resilience as well as a general aptitude for university level chemistry. This year nearly 8000 of the most able students in the country entered with certificates awarded relative to the other very able entrants - Copper (top 64%), Silver (top 26%), Gold (top 9%).
Many congratulations to all who took part.
