UKMT (UNITED KINGDOM MATHEMATICS TRUST) INTERMEDIATE CHALLENGE

A set of excellent results were announced yesterday from UKMT for 12 of ASPIRE’s students!!! 30 of our students took a mathematics test nearly a month ago and 12 of them managed to achieve an award!!!

The students managed to get:

  • 2 Gold Awards
  • 4 Silver Awards
  • 6 Bronze Awards

We are all very proud for their achievement and we would like to congratulate all students that took part in this assessment as well as our Mathematics teacher, Mrs Christiana Erotokritou, for her hard work and determination!

Our two gold award winners have earned the opportunity to take part in the Grey and the Pink Kangaroo European Maths papers which will take place in March.  These are one-hour papers with 25 multiple choice questions, taken by pupils from over 30 countries worldwide.

 

So what is UKMT?

The UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) is a registered charity whose aim is to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics. The UKMT organises national mathematics competitions and other mathematical enrichment activities for 11-18 year old UK school pupils. It was established in 1996 and in the last academic year over 600,000 pupils from 4,000 schools took part in the three individual challenges, the UK's biggest national maths competitions. Each challenge leads into a follow-on Olympiad round and mentoring schemes and summer schools run for high performing students as well as training the team of six to represent the UK in the International Mathematical Olympiad.

Intermediate Challenge

The United Kingdom Mathematics Trust Intermediate Challenge is aimed at pupils in Year 11 or below. The challenge involves answering 25 multiple choice questions in one hour and is sat in school under exam conditions.
