OxColl-411-scaled
We are very pleased to announce the OIC results from the British Mathematical Olympiad, Round 1.Of our 14 entrants, six scored a merit (top 70%) and 2 scored a distinction (top 25%). Particularly impressive was one Year 11 student managed to achieve a distinction whilst competing with students one and two years his senior. The British Mathematical Olympiad (BMO) forms part of the selection process for the UK International Mathematical Olympiad team. It is organised by the British Mathematical Olympiad Subtrust, which is part of the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust.┬áThis competition is only for those students who score roughly in the top 1% nationally on Maths Challenge, and requires students to answer more complicated problems and to show mathematical arguments. Congratulations to all our mathematicians!
