Senior Maths Challenge - Kangaroo

28th January, 2022 by Jade Martin

Congratulations to Toby E (Year 9), who sat the Senior Kangaroo, which is the next stage on from the UKMT Senior Maths challenge. Only around 6000 people were invited to this round so this was an incredible achievement in itself!

In the competition are 100 points to score and this year, the threshold for achieving Merit (the top 25% of participants) was 45 points. Toby absolutely smashed this scoring 60 points! As you can imagine we are incredibly proud here in Maths.
Next Wednesday is the Intermediate Maths Challenge which our Year 9, 10 and 11 students are taking part in.
