Lower Sixth pupil Daneel L has just been awarded a Highly Commended mark in the Unofficial Guide to Medicine (UGTM) Essay Competition 2019-20.

The competition, run by the medical educational project, is open to all Year 11, 12 and 13 students in secondary education, and receives a huge number of entries every year.

The judges were impressed with the standard of Daneel’s work, 'How Can the Current Problems in Healthcare be Minimised Using AI and Technology?', adding it was recognised as ‘excellent’ and worthy of the Highly Commended status.

Commenting, our Head of Science, Dr Rebecca Stone, said: “This is fantastic news. They give out a first prize, two runners up, then eight Highly Commended awards only. It’s attracts applicants from a great number of countries and schools so to be selected as one of 11 prize winners is impressive. We’re incredibly proud!”

She added: "King's runs a number of academic societies to stretch and broaden knowledge. Our Howard Society, which operates on Monday afternoons, is open to any interested Fifth and Sixth Form biologists. The society aims to enthuse and engage pupils interested in pursuing future careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary science or biology. Activities range from exploring medical ethics, dissection, and examination of microscope specimens, to practical activities beyond the GCSE and A level curriculum."
