Varndean College Student Successes in UK Maths Challenge

Students at Varndean College achieved 4 golds, 10 silvers and 11 bronzes in this year's UKMT Senior Maths Challenge. Over 80,000 pupils from across the UK returned scripts with the top 10% receiving a gold certificate, the next 20% silver and the next 30% bronze.

Approximately 7,000 of the top students are invited to sit one of the follow-on competitions, the British Mathematical Olympiad (BMO1) or the Senior Kangaroo (SKANG).
