    Hey, I just did the Senior Maths Challenge today as a year 11. Judging by the solutions I received, I believe I got 71, but for one of the questions I can’t remember what I put so it may be 76 I’m not certain. Even if I got 71, anyone with past experience of the smc or anyone who did it this year have any idea what kind of level that would be e.g, bronze/silver (I know it won’t be gold)? I’m quite worried about it seeing as I really wanted a silver in my first year😂

    That would most definitely be a silver if you do get 71

    What do you think the Olympiad boundary will be? I heard it was harder than last year, so I'm hoping my 101 will make the cut...

    How are you people so smart? I’m jealous😂 After looking back at the paper I realised there were a couple of questions I could’ve answered but didn’t. Agh. Next time.Really? I’ve not done it before so I don’t know whether it was easier or harder, but typically 100 tends to be the mark they enter people in for the BMO anyway I think.

    Everyone did so well! I'm in year 11 too and I got 68. I know that is probably a bronze, but I hope there is a very slim chance of getting silver.
