FIVE students from Queen Elizabeth’s, Crediton, have been praised for entering a University of Cambridge chemistry challenge.

Sarah Tucker, Troy Sharples, Ellie Balsdon, James Trott and Johnathan Bulled volunteered for the challenge, in which they had to sit a 90-minute exam immediately after their AS exams had finished.

All questions asked were unpredictable and unlike anything they will come across in|A-level chemistry exams. All the students came out of the national competition with immense credit.
