Seven students at East Norfolk Sixth Form College have taken part in the annual Chemistry Olympiad.
The contest encourages students to pit their wits against some tough questions, set by a committee of teachers from schools and universities.
They devise a whole range of interesting and challenging questions on real and relevant chemistry, raising awareness of what the subject is all about.
Three students were awarded silver certificates – Rose McNelly, Matthew Timms and Annabel Canham. Ellie Wilson, Zeki Shaw and Gigi Nicolson were awarded bronze certificates.
Chemistry teacher, Karen Dawson, said: 'There is no doubt that these questions are demanding: they do not rely on the relatively easy recall of information which students will have met before, but instead on thinking and trying to work out answers to unfamiliar questions.
