    Hi all,
    I am sitting this on Tuesday and I was wondering if anyone had any tips for how to prepare for it? For most questions the solutions are actually really simple but it's often difficult to spot those tricks/approaches, so was just wondering if anyone had any tips?

    Thank you

    same but I tried the past papers and I feel that the questions are much harder than the UKMT intermediate / senior challenge

    I agree. And here you lose marks for silly things like not proving that x2-y2=(x+y)(x-y)

    & I really didn't want to do it but I didn't have a say in the matter - my teacher entered me anyway!
