Hereford Sixth Form College Students’ Maths Challenge Success
Posted on 14th January 2020
7 gold, 40 silver and 43 bronze awards were awarded to Hereford Sixth Form College students in this year’s UK Mathematics Trust Senior Maths Challenge. Over 82,000 students from across the UK returned scripts for the Senior Maths Challenge with the top 10% receiving a gold certificate, the next 20% silver and the next 30% bronze.
Approximately 6,000 of the top students are invited to participate in round 2 of this challenge, the Senior Kangaroo. In addition, approximately 1,000 of the very top students are invited instead to participate in the British Mathematical Olympiad – a gruelling test of mathematical ability. Hereford Sixth Form College had 5 students who qualified for the Senior Kangaroo and 2 students who qualified for the British Mathematical Olympiad!
The British Mathematical Olympiad is a gruelling test of mathematical ability and endurance. The top 1,000 scorers in November’s Senior Maths Challenge are invited to sit this prestigious exam, and those who perform in the top 25% gain the Distinction award.
This year we had 2 amazing students qualify; Bevis Drury achieved the Merit and Sebastian Dixon achieved the higher Distinction!
Moreover, Sebastian received a BRONZE MEDAL award (something Hereford Sixth Form College has only ever achieved once before), and a qualification to the second British Mathematical Olympiad round.
Congratulations to all participating students!
