    UKMT Junior Maths Challenge

    In the last week of April, our highest prior attaining students in year 7 and 8 took part in UKMT Junior Mathematical Challenge competition that is aimed at students in schools and colleges based in the UK. 

    The Junior Mathematical Challenge is a 60-minute, multiple-choice competition aimed at students across the UK.

    It encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems.

    The problems on the Junior Mathematical Challenge are designed to make students think. Most are accessible, yet still challenge those with more experience.

    To recognize the highest performers in the Challenge, the top-scoring 40% of participants are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates in the ratio 3:2:1.

    In addition, around 2000 of the very highest performers will be invited to take part in the Junior Olympiad and over 10,000 to take part in the Junior Kangaroo.

    We hope that taking part in the Junior Mathematical Challenge was a stimulating and rewarding experience for our students, whether or not they achieve the top awards or take part in future competitions, which are both within their capability.

    Leonard from Year 8 said he looked forward to taking part again in the process next year especially since the questions tested their problem-solving skills rather than memory recall.

    Arya from Year 8 said that it was interesting and challenging to take part in the competition. Arya also enjoyed the fact that she had to creatively think about how to find the answers which she could arrive at using more than one method.
