UK Mathematics Trust – Intermediate Maths Challenge Results

On Thursday 2nd February, 18 students took part in the UK Mathematics Trust – Intermediate Maths Challenge.

The challenge is an hour-long multiple-choice challenge of increasingly difficult mathematical problems to be solved with only mathematical knowledge, a piece of paper and a pencil. I am pleased to announce that over 75% of the boys have received a certificate and we have a qualifier for the Pink Kangaroo (done by only 8000 students across the country).

The thresholds for the certificates

  • Gold 71+
  • Silver 55+
  • Bronze 42+

Congratulations to all the following students:
