Success for students in the Junior UKMT Maths Challenge!

Success for students in the Junior UKMT Maths Challenge!

The Boswells School Mathematics Faculty celebrated the success of students in year 7 and 8 who took part in the 2018 Junior UKMT Maths Challenge.  The Junior Challenge is aimed at pupils in Year 8 and below and involves answering 25 multiple choice questions in one hour and is sat in school under normal exam conditions.  The top 40% of students nationally receive a gold, silver or bronze certificate in the ratio 1:2:3 and each institution receives a ‘Best in School’ certificate. 

The students were able to demonstrate a high level of mathematical knowledge and problem solving skills to return an impressive collection of certificates.  Of the 129 students who entered 38 were awarded bronze certificates, 15 were awarded silver certificates and 9 students were awarded the top gold award.  Special mention goes to Lewis Houghton, William Jackson and Eleanor Lamb from year 8 and Samuel Savory and Noah Higgs from year 7 whose performance saw them qualify for the following Junior Kangaroo round (named after the Australian Maths Trust who introduced the follow on rounds to the national math challenges). Both Eleanor and William were successful in achieving a merit award, placing them in the top 25% of qualifiers in this challenge.

Congratulations to all students on their successful participation in this year’s challenge.
