The Institute of Biology of Ireland awarded Gold Medals to each of five 2018 Leaving Certificate Biology students at a ceremony in the National Botanic Gardens on November 29th 2018. These annual awards for excellence in Biology are made to the highest performing students in the current year’s Leaving Certificate examinations.
Certificates of Commendation are also awarded to the school and the teacher of Biology. Congratulations to all the students, to the teachers and the schools. The Institute of Biology of Ireland look forward to making similar awards in 2019.
