Cambridge psychometric prize
Congratulations to Ketan Ahuja whose essay, 'Educational success depends on when you're born', has been judged the best school psychometric essay. From the University's website:
It's good news that psychology is becoming such a popular subject in schools. To support this encouraging trend, we're posting an essay by Ketan Ahuja, a pupil at St. Paul's School, London, which wins the University of Cambridge Psychometric Centre's prize as the best school essay on a psychometric topic.
We were impressed that, rather than focusing on analytical theories or eye-catching applied areas, he concentrates on underlying issues, including statistical phenomena which many students find off-putting. There's also a sense that Ketan is addressing a subject of some personal interest, a sure way of making theory and research come alive.
