Following on from an outstanding result in the Intermediate UMKT Mathematics Challenge, for Year 9, 10 and 11 pupils, Harry Smith of Year 10 has qualified to take part in the prestigious Hamilton Olympiad. He will also receive a Gold Award and a certificate for Best in School, for his achievement so far.
The Hamilton Olympiad is a follow-on round to the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, with the aim of stretching high-attaining young people. It is a 2-hour competition consisting of six problems requiring full written solutions.
UKMT only invite around 600 qualifying students from the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge to take part in the Hamilton Olympiad.
Each qualifying student receives a Certificate of Qualification and the highest-scoring participants each receive Certificates of Distinction and Merit. The top 50 or so scorers will also be awarded a book prize; the title varies from year to year. Medals are awarded to the top 100 scorers in the competition.
We look forward to working with Harry on some practice problems, at Mathematics Enrichment Club on Wednesdays!
