    Very unfortunately in yesterday's UKMT senior exam, I got 3 silly mistakes in question 1-20 and 2 questions that I can't work out (24 and 25). So my total mark is possibly 102. Is it possible to get in next round of Olympiad? I looked through last year's result that student over 106 were invited to Olympiad. Compared to the tests of years before, I think this one is not very hard. So I'm quite nervous now. And is there any information about the threshold of years before?

    You do have a chance with 102. Lots of people found this year's paper harder since there was so much geometry (I certainly did, and I was aiming for BMO too) so I'd say there is a possibility you could get into BMO, although it isn't definite

    Depends - last year it was 106 to get in, but in previous years the threshold was a little lower. I'd say you do have a chance - it was a hard paper this year.

    Don't forget that if you don't make it in, it's possible to enter by paying a fee.
