Kangaroo emblem for Maths ChallengeAfter successful UKMT Senior Maths Challenge results, four students from QEGS were invited to participate in follow on competitions. Only 5% of students who enter the Maths Challenge are invited to participate in the follow on rounds of the British Mathematical Olympiad (BMO1) or the Senior Kangaroo. The Maths department are still eagerly awaiting the BMO1 results however Harry Elliot (Yr13) achieved a commendable score of 35 in the Kangaroo and Karan Gupta (Yr12) scored an impressive 70 points. To put these scores into perspective, merit certificates are awarded to the top 25% of Senior Kangaroo participants and this year this applied to scores greater than 55. Well done to Harry and Karan.
