QE Mathematicians Achieve Gold in Elite Competition

In October some of QE’s keenest mathematicians entered the national annual UK Mathematics Trust Senior Maths Challenge. The challenge is to solve 25 maths problems in 90 minutes. They achieved excellent results with many of those entering receiving a certificate. Altogether, QE students were awarded six gold, twenty-seven silver and twenty-one bronze certificates. Year 2 students Rohan Kishore and Rushil Partha, along with Year 1 students Noble Anim, Zedd Bignall, Luke Grabham and Daniel Owen, all scored very highly and were awarded gold certificates. Rohan and Noble achieved the highest scores in the respective year groups. About 10% of students taking part in this national competition achieve gold and are invited to take part in the follow-on rounds in November where they face even tougher challenges of mathematical skills and understanding.

Helen Carvill, Course Leader for A Level Mathematics, said “we are very impressed by the number of excellent mathematicians here at QE, many of whom will go on to use their mathematical and problem-solving skills at a higher level in a wide range of careers.” Rushil is busy preparing for his Cambridge interview where he hopes to study Mathematics and Rohan is in the process of applying for an Engineering degree course. The Year 1 students are currently considering studying subjects such as Mathematics, Economics, Engineering and Computer Science at university in the future.

Well done to all who took part!
