On Thursday 6 February sixty more able Mathematicians from Years 9 and 10 competed in a National Mathematics competition. The challenge involves answering 25 multiple choice questions in one hour and is sat in school under normal exam conditions. The pupils worked really hard for the whole hour on very complex questions.

The top 40% of students nationally receive a gold, silver or bronze certificate and each institution receives a Best in School certificate. Around 500 of the highest scorers in each school year are invited to take part in the Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad papers. We will find out who the certificate winners are soon.

Example of one of the questions: How many numbers can be written as a sum of two different positive integers, each at most 100?

  1. 100
  2. 197
  3. 198
  4. 199
  5. 200
