    I got 1,2,4 right, 3 i got wrong (do you think I'll still get 6 or 7 marks?), 5 I didnt do and 6 I did slightly differently. I hopefully got around 40.

    How did everyone else do?

    From past experiance in the JMO, you'll either get 3 or 8 marks for q3, depnding on how the examiner feels.

    I didn't do as well as I was hoping to.. I got questions 2,4,and 5 right, but I forgot to write the answer in question 1, got question 3 wrong, and I prime factored the numbers 1-10 in question 5 (I did it differently).

    And I did question 6 differently too..(the triangle next to the small heptagon was isosceles) - do you get marked down even if your answer is a well-reasoned one?

    I think as long as its correct you get full marks

    I did question 6 the same way as you, I've never done an olympiad before so I don't know how they mark the answers, but I would think they would still give at least 9 or 10 marks as long as there is good reasoning. After all, there's not just one way of working out in maths!

    I really hope so. It would be great if they do

    Trouble is, sometimes the markers are quite grumpy! The first time I did the Junior Olympiad, one of my answers was wrong, but my method in the solution itself was quite close to theirs. Guess how many marks I got for that question? 0

    For all we know, they could be marking our papers right now

    I got 1,2 and 5 right - didn't see through 3 but I hope to get a few marks from that. Anyway, hope I get distinction!

    If the method and answer are right, regardeless of it is the same as theirs, then you should get 10.

    I'm nervous: for the JMO last year, I got 9,7 and 5 marks. The 9 and 7 I thought were fair but the 5, I thought, deserved 9. I hope I get distinction this year

    What did you do wrong to get 5

    I used a diagram instead of words to show something and also phrased something a different way. It was also a little messy (a few crossings-out) but otherwise legible.

    Hi!
    I also did Cayley Olympiad and found it generally much easier than last year's paper (which I also did, and got a distinction- I was in year 8). I had enough time to answer all the questions fully, and now that the answers are online, I am feeling fairly confident, and I am really hoping for a distinction again (maybe, just maybe a medal, but probably not)!

    I hope that I had been able to answer all 6 (I could only answer 4 questions, and one was only half-right).

    I don't know about your school but in mine they get emailed, so I can find out my score for each question on Monday hopefully, and get the paper back on Thursday or after easter
    Have you actually got your score

    How do you think you did. Also, did you do Cayley?
    I know almost for a fact that I got merit (only answered 4 questions, but answered them well).

    Thank you, and good luck to you too! I guess it's not really about answering all of them, just making sure you really concentrate on the ones you're confident in.

    Now that the thresholds are up, I'm not so confident, but remember, we have all done really well to get so far, so just to do the Olympiad is an achievement

    Yep I did Cayley. I thought the thresholds would be crazily high this year as it was much easier than previous years.

    I answered all 6, but got one question wrong and I did two others differently.. So I'm not too sure what I'm going to get
