    I did end up getting 130 which was good because I was paranoid I got a couple more of the easier ones wrong.

    I got the same as you! I was so nervous that I wasn't going to get in but then phew! If you don't mind my asking, what are you aiming for (roughly)? Good luck anyhow!
    I want to try and aim for a merit, not sure if I will get it though... It would be amazing if I got a distinction or a medal, but I think thats quite unlikely for me. Also, good luck to you too! And what are you roughly aiming for?

    Difficult... :/
    I couldn't answer many of the questions particularly because I spent 20 minutes on one question and just done it wrong throughout... -_-
    I didn't understand some of the ways that questions were worded too -_-

    I had done the past three as practise and I found today's a lot harder than those. I didn't really have time to do the last 10 so I made quite a few guesses.

    I realised a lot of the answers as I was looking over the paper again after the challenge oh well, I wonder when we'll find out...

    I made several- ah- educated guesses. We'll have to see how those work out.

    I was just pissed off blantantly at the fact that some of the questions were worded in a weird way, often confusing me.
    I didn't do any past papers unfortunately... my fault I know, very stupid thing to do.
    But, either way, it was a hard paper - I guessed the last 6 I think lol just read them in the last 2 minutes and circled anything. Hopefully, 2/6 are correct!

    I wonder when the paper and mark scheme are going to be put onto the website. It's weird because for the IMC, they put in at the end of the day - it was on the website already, and for the Kangaroo, it's not on -_-

    Yes, same Hopefully a few of the ones I actually worked out properly will be correct!

    Not sure unfortunately, I don't even know if they put it up on the day - I've never been in a Kangaroo round, so I never check it lol.
    But, I'll tweet them to ask!
