UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge 2020 - Bangkok Prep

UKMT Junior Mathematics Challenge 2020

In June 2020, Year 7 and Year 8 students competed in the first ever online UKMT Junior Mathematics challenge. The problems on the Junior Mathematical Challenge are designed to make students think. Most are accessible, yet still challenge those with more experience. The Challenge encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems. It is a notoriously difficult challenge held worldwide.

Due to school closures, and under unusual and challenging circumstances, our mathematicians performed admirably. Bangkok Prep were awarded 28 certificates, including five Gold certificates. To recognize the highest performers in the Challenge, only the top-scoring 40% of participants are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates in the ratio 3:2:1. This gives an indication of what a huge achievement this is.

Pictured below is Hajin (right) who earned Best in Year 7 and Atty (left) who achieved Best in School with an outstanding total of 130 points out of a maximum of 135 – Congratulations to them both.
