UKMT Intermediate Individual Mathematics Challenge
Students from years 9 to 11 entered the hall on Thursday 4th February to sit a challenging Mathematics paper which required them to be able to solve problems at an advanced level without calculators.
The paper is taken by about 200,000 students throughout Britain from all different types of educational establishments. Gold, Silver or Bronze certificates are awarded to the top 40% of students nationwide. The highest scorers in the country are invited to participate in the Intermediate Kangaroo or Intermediate Olympiad follow-on competitions. About 3,000 students take the Kangaroo and only 500 in each Year group from the whole of the country take the Olympiad.
The individual photo shows Kimberley Richings in Year 9 hard at work who achieved a Gold award and has gained a place in the Cayley Olympiad (10thMarch) which is a great achievement.
Jodie Bunce in Year 10 also gained a Gold and a place in the Pink Kangarooround (17th March).
Other students who gained an award were as follows:
Angharad Thomas Year 11
Shannon Parsons Year 11
Amy Edwards Year 11
Fatima Ahmedi Year 11
Finlay Roberts Year 11
Megan Evans Year 10
All the other students who took the challenge paper did extremely well and they should be pleased with their achievement too.
