Maths Challenge

Sixty of our students are taking part in the UKMT (UK Mathematics Trust) Intermediate Maths Challenge on Thursday 2nd February.


The UKMT Individual Maths Challenge is a paper containing lively, intriguing multiple choice questions, designed to stimulate interest in the subject. There are 25 multiple choice questions: 15 of which are more accessible, while the final 10 provide much more food for thought.


Gold, silver and bronze certificates are awarded to 40% of participants nationally in the Intermediate Challenges. The most successful participants at each level will be invited to enter follow-on rounds: either Kangaroos (multiple choice questions) or Olympiads requiring full written answers.
