I have done some Maclaurin olympiad practice. How many marks would i get if I get the correct answer but use a completely different method of getting there (perhaps less mathametically as I didn't use equations as such) but I explained the method I used in in detail so it wasn't a fluke?
Normally you got either 0-3 marks or 8-10 marks for each submitted solution in Olympiad round. Correct answer will not always justify high marks. You need to write up a mathematically sound prove, which sometimes could be tricky. Anyway, good luck for your Maclaurin prep.

No, you only gain marks for questions right. You don't loses any marks for any questions wrong.

I really don't know. I don't think you get to know your rank in the whole country. I may be wrong.

I would probably be in the bottom 100... lol
