Ex IB student Joe Boyle captained an Edinburgh University team to the semi finals of University Challenge by beating a strong Wolfson - Cambridge University side. It was an exciting contest with Wolfson coming back strongly in the final stages, but were unable to beat an impressive Edinburgh, the final score 195 to 160. The team had already beaten Durham University in round 1, the Open University in a thrilling tie-break in round 2 and Birmingham University in the quarter finals. Joe is currently studying Ecology and Environmental Science at Edinburgh. We wish him all the luck in the semi finals!
