    Which paper are you doing? Preparation tips etc. would be appreciated.

    I'm doing Maclaurin, and definitely looking forward to the challenge!

    Not this year for me. I got silver. I'm still happy though- it's my first time doing the IMO. Fortunately, our school prepares us via telling us four days before the challenge that we have one.

    I did Hamilton as well. I got the last question wrong but i think i've got the right answers (I checked with someone) for the first five questions although i guess i will lose some marks for non-complete steps. Can anyone tell me the boundaries of getting distinction/medal/bookmark for hamilton in the previous years?

    thanks

    I did the Maclaurin, did two questions fairly well (I hope) and three very sketchily, anyone else do it?

    Is that 8:9? I'm not sure is that question or not

    I did the pink kangaroo today, did anyone else?

    Does anyone have the full list of answers? I think that I got 22 or 23 correct. What have the boundaries been in past years for the different certificates? I got 76 last year and that was a certificate of Merit.

    I don't think we should discuss questions until the UKMT post the paper and official solutions tomorrow morning as people can still do the paper until midnight and there may be some in different timezones.

    I did 1-4, did most of 5 but then ran out of time, and did 6 sketchily.
