Oxford University Computing Challenge - Bangkok Prep

Oxford University Computing Challenge

At the end of last half term 27 of our students took part in the Oxford University Computing Challenge. This competition was open to Year 7 – Year 10 students who performed in the top 10% of the world in the UK Bebras 2021 event. Our Year 11 – 13 Computer Science students were also invited to participate.

Congratulations to all students that took part, with a special mention to the following students:

  • Zaizai I – 34 points and 1st place in school in the “Elite” category
  • Ella P – 32 points and 1st place in school in the “Seniors” category
  • Pome U – 34 points and 1st place in school in the “Juniors” category

An extra special mention to:

  • Pip P – 58 points and 1st place in school in the “Inters” category.

Pip was just 2 points away from proceeding through to the final round of the competition which is open to just 20 out of the 6659 participants across the world in his age category – what an amazing achievement for Bangkok Prep’s first year of running this competition.

We are excited to see how Pip and the rest of the students perform in next year’s competition!
