I am really confused about the ukmt intermediate Olympiads. I would be in the year 9 or below category, which is for Cayley, but what if you get a score higher than the minimum required for Cayley? Would you just not be allowed to do Hamilton or maclaurin just because of your age?
And also I have seen pictures of the ukmt certificates and saw one that says best in year. I'm the only one in my year who did it so would I get that regardless?

No, all year 9s and below do the Cayley as long as they get the required score. I believe that UKMT said scores will be released wc 15th.

Regarding the best In year award, I’ve never heard of anyone in that position for but I suppose you will.

Hope this helps!

When you say wc 15th, are you talking about the 15th of this month, or next?

Feb. It usually takes ~2+ weeks to get the thresholds sorted, then another few days for the marks.

there's not much you can do until grade boundaries are released, you could look at previous years though. I believe that last year the grade boundaries increased by quite a bit so we'll just have to see if this year's results follow that trend.

That's a great score, congrats but no it's extremely unlikely to make it into the cayley olympiad e.g. last year you had to get over 110 so not probably not.

You won't make it into the cayley olympiad that's too low a score sorry, last year it was over 110 and there's no way the grade boundaries will drop that much.

Not true, there is a chance that he could still make it into the cayley olympiad. Last year was an outliner in difficulty. Anyway, if you really want to do the olympiad rishiansm0001, you can pay in.

And even if you are far away from the boundary, I strongly recommend paying in anyway. People can be decent at the challenges but exceptional in olympiads. Heard it first hand from people who have done TSTs and such.

The challenges are not the best at determining your true ability - it is essentially a test of 'who gets the least no. of silly mistakes'. But truthfully, olympiads are also a poor indicator for one's true ability. rishiansm0001 if u are discouraged by your result, I advise you to just pay in if you don't get in. Doing an olympiad gets you ready for doing bmo1 and bmo2 - higher levelled olympiads, if you wish to do them in the future.
