Announcements
1. Answers are live here: http://www.ukmt-resources.org.uk/SMC15.html

Got 5 of the 20 questions I answered wrong. A little annoyed, but I don't think 80's too bad; just hoping thresholds will go down so I get a gold!

At least you only got 2 wrong - I missed out 5 and got 5 wrong so I lost more marks 😔

Unlucky. I'm just annoyed because several of the ones I missed out were easily solvable (by my standards) and on both of the ones I got wrong, I had the right method but made a small mistake
5. My teacher calculated I got 103. Is that enough to qualify

Yeah, I got Q24 wrong because I can't add up and the cylinders question wrong for not counting the water displacement 😒

That's annoying :/ I thought it was easier when I sat it, but now I know the answers I think it was harder haha

12. The grade boundaries are going to be really high because someone posted the answers on TSR at about 11 yesterday, I saw them and ignored them thinking it was a troll, then this morning I realise this person somehow knew all 25 answers.

I'm even more mad because I saw them, they were up for about 2 and a half hours then taken down. I didn't commit them to memory at all as I thought it was a troll :/

How did you do? I was originally going for Olympiad but I literally got all 4 of my 50/50's wrong, so I've ended up with 15 right 5 wrong and only 80 what a horrible day for me xD

Tbh though I'm (no offence) glad that you didn't memorise them. It'd have made it unfair for all of us.

Awww Yeah same man I got 95 fml.. I got Olympiad last year but messed it up really badly this year. Pretty shocked at myself

The wording on the lines question that one i probably got wrong.
That's why I got it wrong too. Messed up my whole thinking for that question, so ended up making a mistake.
17. Answered 21 questions, got 3 wrong, definitely not in BMO1. Will never get to sit an olympiad .
The REALLY annoying thing is that I only got 'easy' questions wrong. All the later questions that I attempted I did fine.
