Queen's University students rise to TV challenge

Every year pupils in our schools are among the highest achievers in the UK in GCSE and A-level results. And now Queen's University students are also displaying an impressive range of knowledge, having got through to the quarter finals of the notoriously difficult University Challenge television quiz show. It may be more than 30 years since Queen's last won the title, but hopes are high this year. A star of the team is Lurgan medical student Gareth Gamble who even had host Jeremy Paxman gasping in admiration at his rapid fire answers. We hope that the team continues to pass their tests with flying colours and bring the trophy back here.
