Over 30 Woking College Computer Science students took part in an international computing competition which attracts entrants from 30 countries. Sponsored by Oxford University, the competition, known as the “Elite Bebras” aims to develop skills in problem solving and computational thinking skills.
All Woking College students achieved certificates in the Elite Category of the competition with four students: Bora Ulukan, Edward Barker, Val Knight and Rowan Lamerton receiving a Distinction. Rowan also achieved the highest marks for the College in this category.
The Challenge is highly regarded by universities and employers. Student Rowan Lamerton commented “I was interested in completing the challenge because it looked fun and I gained a recognised qualification which will be useful in my future career. I am really surprised but really pleased that I achieved top marks in the Elite category”.
