This November our Year 12 Higher Level mathematics students entered the Senior Mathematical Challenge, a prestigious mathematics competition which regularly attracts over 700,000 entries from around the world.
The Challenge, which is administered by the UK Mathematics Trust, consists of a 90-minute, multiple-choice exam and encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems. The problems on the Senior Mathematical Challenge are designed to make students think. Most problems are accessible yet still present a challenge to those with more experience.
The top-scoring 60% of participants are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates in the ratio 3:2:1. In addition, around 1,000 of the very highest performers are invited to take part in the British Mathematical Olympiad Round 1, a difficult Olympiad that is used as the first round in the selection of the British national team which ultimately participates in the International Mathematical Olympiad. Around 6,000 finalists will take part in the Senior Kangaroo.
We are thrilled to announce that William H was awarded a gold certificate and an invitation to take part in the British Mathematical Olympiad, and Serena L was also awarded a gold certificate and scored highly enough to take part in the Senior Kangaroo.

Congratulations also go to Jerry C, Jimmy S, Ruolin S and Marco S who were all awarded a Silver Certificate. Daniel K, Hui T, Giulia F, Stephanie T, Rushang S, Aaron Z, Macken L, Herve S and Maggie W who were all awarded a Bronze Certificate.
Great accomplishments for our talented Dulwich Pudong mathematicians
