Mathematics students have an excellent record in winning these prizes (see item 10/07/01 below).
Here is the message from our Head of School announcing the news:
"I am sure you wil all be pleased to learn that Gareth Evans, who graduates with an M.Math. degree this week, has been awarded one of this year's Dr John Robert Jones Prize (Welsh Award) worth £1100. The competition for UWB's top student award was extremely tough this year. Two of the 4 winning candidates (all of whom will receive a prize of £1100 signifying equivalent levels of performance) qualified for both the Open and Welsh Award."
