    Hey guys...
    Our set has been asked to do the maths challenge and it's compulsory.
    I was wondering if any of you have done one of these and could give me some tips as I would like to actually get bronze, silver, or maybe even gold as it would benefit me later in life.

    Thanks so much and if you're doing it too, how are preparing for it??

    I wouldn't worry about it too much
    I did it and got gold with no preparation but it hasn't really helped me at all
    But the advice I have is look at the last year's test and try, then the questions you get stuck on consult the mark scheme

    You can prepare for it like you'd prepare for any maths exams PRACTICE
