News - Mar 29
We have just received the fantastic results with 250 of the students taking part achieving at least a bronze certificate. This year we have 96 students earning a bronze certificate, 89 earning silver and 65 achieving a gold certificate.
The highest scoring students in each year group are:
Daniel X in Year 9
Xiaokun Y in Year 10
Jonathan MS in Year11.
Xiaokun and Jonathan jointly shared the best-in-school title with both answering all but one question correctly, scoring 130 out of 135.
Special mention to our three Year 8 students who took part in the challenge aimed at older students: Morris M achieved a silver, with Toby R and Naomi J achieving gold.
The journey continues for some students.
We have 44 students from Year 9 and 43 students from Years 10 and 11 who will be taking part in the Grey Kangaroo and Pink Kangaroo rounds respectively.
In addition, each year, the top performing students from all of those who entered the original challenge are invited to take part in one of the follow-on rounds. The best 600 students from each of Years 9, 10 and 11 who took part in the original challenge are invited to take part in the Cayley, Hamilton and Maclaurin Mathematical Olympiads respectively.
The Colyton Grammar School students invited this year are Louis D-S and Daniel X from Year 9, Alice K, George P, Frederick S and Xiaokun Y from Year 10 and Kevin J, Jonathan MS and William R from Year 11.
Congratulations to all students who took part in the original challenge and for those below Year 11, see if you can go a step further next year.
