UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge Feb 2021
Further to the success of the British Mathematics Olympiad, we are delighted to announce that 85 students in Year 9, 10 and 11 achieved 34 gold certificates, 25 silver certificates and 13 bronze certificates.
The British Mathematics Olympiad is a national competition and is a follow-on round to the Senior Mathematical Challenge. It combines mathematical, communication and teamwork skills and offers pupils another way to express and develop their enjoyment of mathematics and promotes mathematical dexterity, team working abilities and communication skills.
This is an excellent set of results and all those who took part should be very proud of themselves. Following this, 10 students scored enough marks to qualify for the first round of the British Mathematics Olympiad and we have high hopes for further success. In addition, 34 boys qualified for the Junior Kangaroo papers, a follow-on round to the Junior Mathematical Challenge, which are differentiate by year group. Both papers will take place in March.
A special congratulations goes to Shlok T (10T), Sida L (11W), Johnny S (11E), Hashim I (11W) and Ryan L (11L), who all scored 100%. Well done to Aditya K (9) for achieving top marks in Year 9.
85 opted to take part in the UKMT intermediate Mathematics challenge online. Unlike in previous years, due to the Covid pandemic we sadly were not able to offer this to all students.
Mr AM Robson (Headmaster) said:
“An exceptional achievement from all our students that have risen to this challenge. We are incredibly proud of the academic excellence displayed by our students in achieving these awards.
A special thank you to the Maths Department, particularly Mr B Owen (Teacher of Mathematics) and Mrs K Avedisian (Teacher of Mathematics) for their work in allowing this activity to take place remotely. Reading School is especially grateful to all our parent and alumni donors who continue to donate to the ‘Building for the Future Fund’ which enables these sorts of competitions to continue to take place.”
