In February 2015 we reported on the impressive performance of Blue Coat students during the United Kingdom Maths Trust Intermediate Maths Challenge. A number of students successfully qualified for the follow on rounds – The Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad and the Kangaroo, held on Thursday 19th March. Students were invited to complete a demanding two hour paper written for the top 500 pupils in the UK.
As a result of their fantastic performance in the Mathematical Olympiad Kieran Cheung, Alex Gaffney, Sam Jones, Yvonne Lam and Jonathan Liu were each awarded Certificates of Merit.
Garance Levy, Adam McBreen, Adam Moorcroft and Robert Paraoan who took part in the Kangaroo competition were also awarded Certificates of Merit.
Congratulations to all involved.
Organised by the UK Mathematics Trust, the charity seeks to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics through national competitions and enrichment activities.
