In light of the fierce competition, and very high standards exercised by the judges, this is a great accolade and recognition of the application and commitment they have displayed. Well done to Zoe, Cameron and Abby - we’re very proud of you.”
The award for Best in Year will be presented to the AMC students at an awards ceremony in London on 26 June 2012.
