    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

    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 :lol: 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.

    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.
