Congratulations to the 176 students, from the Second to the Fifth Year, who took part in this year’s UK Maths Trust (UKMT) Intermediate Mathematical Challenge. We recently received the results and are pleased to share that our students achieved an impressive 27 Golds, 52 Silvers and 49 Bronze awards.  

It is brilliant to see a much higher participation in this year’s challenge, with an increase of silver and bronze awards. The certificate thresholds for this year were Bronze: 47+, Silver: 61+ and Gold: 77+.  

In addition, some of our highest scoring students qualify for various follow-on rounds including the Grey Kangaroo (score of 72+), for which we had eight students qualify, and the Pink Kangaroo (score of 84+) rounds, for which we had 13 students qualify. The Kangaroo rounds are both 60-minute, 25 multiple-choice challenges and are only open to UK students.

A special congratulations to Second Year student Haocheng Wang whose score of 112 secures him a place in the Cayley Mathematical Olympiad follow on round. Our top scoring student Fourth Year, Naku Debebe, secured a place in the Hamilton Mathematical Olympiad with his impressive score of 120. Well done to both. 

The Olympiads are two-hour Challenges consisting of six Olympiad style problems, and around 1,800 UK and overseas students qualify for these challenges following the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge. They take place on Thursday 21 March. 


The UK Maths Trust is the leading charity that advances the education of young people in maths. For over 20 years it has been inspiring a love of problem solving through maths challenges and enrichment activities, delivered by hundreds of volunteers. 

The UKMT Intermediate Challenge is a 60-minute, 25 multiple-choice challenge. It encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought and fluency to make students think. Most of the problems are accessible yet still challenge those with more experience.
