Uruguayan student Agustin joined Abbey College Cambridge in 2018 to study A Levels.

An exceptional Science and Mathematics student, Agustin soon distinguished himself in national and international academic challenges.

In 2019, during his second year studies Agustin received the prestigious Roentgenuim Award in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge placing in the top 0.6% of more than 9,000 students who entered the competition that year. As a result he was invited to participate in a residential chemistry  summer camp based at St Catherines College and the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge.

As a top performing A Level Chemistry student, Agustin was also invited to partcipate in the 2020 International Chemistry Olympiad as part of the British team. At the International Chemistry Olympiad Agustin achieved a gold award, placing him as the top performing student on the British team, and the 13th placed Chemistry student in the world for that year.

After spending a summer at St Catherines College as a result of his success in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge, Agustin applied to and received an offer to read Natural Sciences at the college. He began his undergraduate studies in Natural Sciences at the Unioversity of Cambridge in the Autumn of 2021.

Agustin has always been keen to share his passion for Chemistry with fellow students, and we look forward to welcoming him back to Abbey College Cambridge to share his experience of studying at the University of Cambridge with Abbey College Cambridge over the next three years.
