Devesh Wins Exeter University’s Natural Sciences Competition

We are thrilled to announce that Devesh has impressively won Exeter University's Natural Sciences competition.

Opting for a video presentation over a written essay they tackled the question: “What is the most important chemical reaction, and why?” Head of Natural Sciences, Professor Geoffrey Nash, commented, “I really enjoyed watching your video. I thought you articulated the importance of photosynthesis incredibly well, and the video was fun as well as informative.”

Upon winning, Devesh expressed delight and surprise: “I was very delighted to win! It’s shown me the importance of putting yourself out there.” His innovative approach earned them a £100 voucher and a University of Exeter hoodie.

Reflecting on the experience, they shared, “Winning has given me confidence in high-level presentations and inspired me to continue in such competitions.”

Bancroft’s is proud of this achievement, aligning with our values of curiosity and excellence.

Devesh’s success will be celebrated across Bancroft’s communication channels, inspiring fellow pupils to pursue their academic interests with passion and confidence.
