Full marks in national Maths Challenge

Full marks in national Maths Challenge

Pupils in Third, Fourth and Fifth Form recently received their results for the UKMT’s Intermediate Maths Challenge and the results were excellent this year! College recorded its second highest number of gold certificates, 13, and pupils also received 25 silver and 26 bronze awards. However, one performance stands out above all. Saul Kim (3rd, H) not only managed to come top in Lower College, impressive considering that he is only in the Third Form, but he also managed to score full marks. No one else in College’s history has every scored this highly. Some 220,000 pupils sat this test and Saul was one of the 80 students to achieve this feat, meaning he will go on to represent Cheltenham College in the next round, the British Maths Olympiad

Saul commented, “As I was taking the test, I found there were some questions that I couldn't answer as easily as the others but I didn't lose any confidence and kept on solving. I didn’t expect to get full marks but I am very happy with the result!”

Very well done to Saul and good luck for the next challenge!
