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.

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
