Top results in national Maths Challenge
Top results for Sherborne International students in a national Maths Challenge
Each year Sherborne International students take part in the national Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, which aims to stimulate mathematical problem solving and is for students in Year 11 or below.
To recognise the highest performers in the Challenge, the top-scoring 40% of participants are awarded bronze, silver and gold certificates.
This year, we are proud to announce that 71% of the Sherborne International students who took part in February 2019 were awarded a certificate.
The Gold Certificate is achieved nationally by the top 7% of entrants – 26% of Sherborne International’s participants were awarded this top-ranking certificate.
Anna Snook, Teacher of Maths at Sherborne International, said “We are very proud of all our students who have performed so well in this year’s Challenge; Tony, Jiawei, Leonardo, Charles, Richard, Dennis and Justin for qualifying for the Intermediate Kangaroo – and Wendy and Jessica for qualifying for the Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad. Fewer than 1% of students who compete in the maths challenges nationally are invited to take part in the Olympiad and Kangaroo. We look forward to both contests, which will take place on Thursday 21st March”.
