Top physics students commended at Holyrood

IOP in Scotland awarded prizes for the top mark in the Scottish Qualifications Authority’s new qualification, as well as 2014’s Higher and Advanced Higher exams, to accommodate for the changes currently being made to Scottish education.

Megan Auld, from Glasgow Academy, won the Higher prize, while two Edinburgh students, Hamish Innes (Stewart’s Melville College) and Mark Baker (George Watson’s College) came top in the Revised Higher. The Advanced Higher was won by Stuart McGibbon from St Ninian’s High in Glasgow and Raheem Beg from Perth High. Another George Watson pupil, Michael Brown, was a winner in the Revised Advanced Higher.

Alison McLure, the IOP’s national officer in Scotland, said: “All six turned out an amazing performance in their physics exams this summer and highly deserve this occasion to celebrate their success. I have no doubt that, having such a demonstrably solid grounding in physics, they will all go on to great things, whatever they decide to do.”
