Senior students take part in the UKMT Maths Challenge 2014.
On Thursday 6th November, twenty-one senior students sat the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge.
The challenge is aimed at all 16-19 year olds studying Mathematics (that is Year 12 – 14). The challenge involves answering twenty-five multiple choice questions in ninety minutes; it is sat under normal exam conditions.
The top 60% of students nationally receive a gold, silver or bronze certificate in the ratio 1:2:3 and each institution receives a Best in School certificate. Top performing students are then invited to take part in follow on rounds and the very best can represent their country in the International Mathematical Olympiad. Around 1000 top scorers in the Senior Challenge are invited to take part in the British Mathematical Olympiad Round one and around 2000 are invited to take part in the Senior Kangaroo.
Last year, in the UKMT Junior Maths Challenge, current Year 10 student, Liam Brady qualified for the Junior Maths Olympiad round.
