    I actually thought it's similar if not easier, but that's probably because I know more stuff than last year. One of my friends thought it was harder so I guess everyone's different. I know I've definitely got a higher score than last year. What about you?
    i found this year's paper slightly easier.. but same, it might be because i know more stuff..
    strangely, i think lots of people on TSR found it harder, if not similar..
    it might also depend on what sort of questions you are good at..(geometry.. algebra, numbers, etc)

    so... anyway, I think it was slightly easier, or similar, but there were lot more 'tricky' questions...

    i'm just hoping i would qualify for Hamilton

    Well good luck
    I know I've no chance of getting into the olympiad for my year, maybe the Kangaroo. I did that last year as well, but hopefully I'll do better in it this year.

    I got it wrong too, but I understand now. The third person can't be correct because the first two can't be both wrong, so the last person is also wrong. And only one of the first two can be right, so only 1 person is right.
    ah, i now understand, thanks mate.

    Even the certificates are tiny A5 sized, but I suppose it's not about the prizes really. You are in for a disappointment if you are expecting big rewards!!
