Many congratulations to EiraLily, Maya and Adelaide in Form V who took part in the UKMT Mathematical Olympiad for Girls last month. 

The competition is a two-and-a-half-hour paper, comprised of five challenging questions, designed to identify students for the UK Olympiad team.  The paper is normally sat by students in UVI, so it was fantastic to see these four girls keen to take on the challenge in Form V.   

A special mention goes to Maya who achieved a Distinction in the competition.  This would be a phenomenal achievement for a student of any age, but especially for one in Form V.  Maya achieved a grade 9 in IGCSE Mathematics at the end of Form IV and is currently studying towards a Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics.  We look forward to seeing what the rest of our Further Mathematics classes can achieve in future UKMT competitions.
