UKMT Senior Maths Challenge 2020

Congratulations to all of those who participated in the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge on Thursday 4th November.  Well done to all the 59 entrants with 24 achieving gold awards and 23 achieving silver.

Year 12 and 13 students were invited to take part in the challenge in early November. Following the challenge, Sida L (Year 11), Ewan L and Anirudh K (Year 12s), Arlan A, Daniel C, Peter I, Siyuan L and Arran R (Year 13s) all qualified for the British Maths Olympiad Round 1.

Students who have qualified for the Senior Kangaroo are Johnny S (Year 11), Ali B, Matthew G, Mannan K, James M, Nihal M, Robert M, Ransen P, Aaryan P, Harish R, Eashan R, Shaunak S, Aditya S, Vivan V (Year 12s), Vamshi D and Sammy M (Year 13s).

This year, the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge took place in very different circumstances and the boys who elected to take part performed excellently. Special mentions go to Anirudh K (12AC) for scoring 125/125 on the paper, an outstanding achievement at this level, Siyuan L (13KY) who was the top performer in Year 13 with a score of 121 and Sida L (11W) and Johnny S (11E) also demonstrated exceptional mathematical ability and dedication.

The UKMT challenges are designed to make students apply Mathematics in problem-solving contexts and with so many of the entrants qualifying for the further rounds the boys have shown once again just how talented they are.

A huge thank you to Mr T Owen (Teacher of Mathematics) for working very hard to ensure these challenges can take place. Look out for the Intermediate and Junior results later in the school year. 

Mr A M Robson, Headmaster said:

“I am delighted to share the accomplishments of our young men who show such passion and commitment to mathematics and continue to work hard to achieve these high results.  A special thank you to Mr B Owen (Teacher of Mathematics) for leading in these challenges and his continued dedication. Congratulations to each of these mathematicians on their superb results and to Mrs S Parker (Head of Mathematics).”

The Olympiad and the Senior Kangaroo challenge took place on Thursday 26th November.

Well done to all participants and good luck to those progressing onto the next rounds!
