United Kingdom Mathematics Trust
Intermediate Mathematical Challenge 2023
On Thursday 2nd February, Year 9 and 10 students took on the annual UKMT Intermediate Mathematics Challenge 2023.
This national event takes the form of a multiple-choice quiz based on using mathematical skills learnt in lessons to problem solve.
Over 4000 schools across the UK take part and the standard of participation is high; only the best achieving students can receive an award and to do so is recognition of the effort and ability of our students.
After good showings from both year groups in their respective challenges last year, expectations were very high and I am proud to announce that this year, the results were our best yet! There were nearly double the number of awards than has been achieved in previous years, with significant numbers of prizes in both Year 9 and Year 10. There were also a number of gold awards beating the results last year where the highest award was a silver.
This year’s prize winners are as follows:
Tasneem A (Year 10) – Best in School, Best in Year 10 and Gold Award
Saskia H (Year 9) – Best in Year 9 and Gold Award
Silver awards were achieved by the following:
(Year 10) Victoria K, Abi C, Molly T, Hannah B, Grace S and Amelia W.
(Year 9) Eden F, Naomi T, Mariella M, Emily B, Megan L and Rosie Y.
Bronze awards were achieved by the following:
(Year 10) Alice W, Millie S, Freya D, Francesca C, Libby W, Neve G, Gracie H, Bethany W, Jemima B and Gemma H.
(Year 9) Lexa K, Imogen F, Neve H, Lucy H, Phoebe B, Vidhya P, Sophie S, Eliza S and Grace D.
Congratulations to everybody involved! We are very much looking forward to the other Mathematical challenges this year.
