    I'd prefer clarification on whether or not we are allowed to discuss it yet.
    I've only just been informed about the thread. If anyone had told me, I'd have warned people not to discuss until Friday, but it seems you were all pretty good about not posting specifics, so no harm done.

    To everyone: In the future, if there's an exam/test that you think should not be discussed - please let me know beforehand. Thanks.

    mm.. so Gold boundary will be almost the same... but Olympiad cut-off will go down a little...?
    I agree & I hope
    What would be really annoying is if we miss a boundary by 1 or 2 marks :mad:

    I don't particularly want to do the kangaroo. But it would take a miracle for the Maclaurin cut-off to be below 90.

    Hey DerBoy, do you think I have a chance to get into the Maclaurin with 98?

    You can pretty much rest assured that will get you in (but I don't want to be responsible for getting your hopes up if it won't, but I am about 83% sure it will).

    One of my students took this challenge and asked me some of the questions today.

    I managed to get them all right in one hour, but it was really, really hard work.

    Congratulations to everybody who got a high score.

    It was somewhere between 80 and 90, so I decided to make it a prime or a square, 81 was too low and 89 was too high.

    I really want to get into the Olympiad. So, I really hope the Maclaurin boundary reduced.

    I also think I only got some right because I had done some of them in the lesson with the student.

    Can anyone inform me what the highest gold threshold has been over the past years (as I can't seem to find the thresholds for the previous years online)?

    I'm pretty sure that it was 78 in 2007 which is the highest one I've found so far.
