Junior Mathematics Challenge 2019

Mrs A Jackson – Teacher of Mathematics

The annual Junior Mathematics Challenge individual competition took place on Tuesday 30th April 2019. The 2019 test paper can be viewed here.

GSAL students in Year 7 and Year 8 took part in the challenge. Around 300,000 students took part across the UK and worldwide this year.

As you will see, the students have done very well. Out of 120 students that sat the challenge at GSAL, 80 achieved certificates; of these, 7 qualified for the next round, called the Junior Kangaroo, and 1 student qualified for the considerably harder Junior Olympiad round.

The results of those who achieved certificates are now posted on the Mathematics Challenge notice board outside MA9. Well done! Mrs Jackson
