    Okeeey. So the page about the UKMT was taken down for some reason.
    Why? (Idk how to message mods about it) if you read the thread you'd see the reasons the page shouldn't be taken down which is:
    We weren't discussing answers.
    If someone got answers from it somehow then it'd mean nothing as their mark isn't counted and they don't get certificates for it.
    You can read this for yourself on the UKMT website.
    I personally doubt that a company like this would be thick enough to count the marks of those that are doing the test after the specified date as they should know people would try to cheat that way.

    The solutions will be released, and then threads will not be taken down. Simple.

    Any discussions surrounding specific questions and/or answers aren't allowed, sorry!

    This is until tomorrow evening and is precautionary, as some students will be sitting the exam tomorrow and so we don't want to give them an advantage.

    The official thread hasn't been taken down, it's just closed and will remain so until Wednesday evening. Some schools do register their pupils to complete the challenge a day late and UKMT accepts it for some reason or another, so we are going to be quite strict on UKMT discussion until then. As long as no one posts answers or question details (or breaks any other rules) their post won't be taken down, though threads might temporarily be taken down for cleanup purposes.

    It was taken down since there were a lot of rule breaking posts in there (not especially sharing answers, but other rules were being broken). It's now been cleared up and is back up here
