I know we are not meant to talk about the content of the maths challenge until 08:00 on Friday the 12th (BST) so I won’t but I just wanted to know how everyone found it? Also how many questions did you answer? I only answered 16 and I am not very confident in my answers.

I’m expecting 21/25 which I think is pretty good.

it was half hard and half medium. I only answered 12 out of the 25 due to knowing how to answer them

Theyre generally available the following morning. Though it was delayed a bit last year.

Do you know how long it will take to get our results? I’m dying to know if I have got Bronze or not, I’m really hoping I have but I’m not so sure

It was decent. I had guessed the last one but I was able to eliminate 2 of the options

Another question: are you all in Year 12 or 13, and do you take Further Maths?

Year 12, with Further Maths, although as far as the maths challenge is concerned, I don’t think further maths will be of any use beyond giving you extra experience using mathematical techniques.

I think 107 - I got the dice rolling and magnet ones wrong because I hate permutation questions. Do you ppl think the BMO1 grade boundary will be lower than last year bcs it wasn't online so less people can cheat?

That is quite annoying. was it mostly online or just for a few? and did you personally find the test easier/harder than last years? I am in year 12 so this was the first one I sat

I am also in year 12 but I did sit the previous SMC but to my displeasure didn't do as well as I would have liked but this year I feel happy with how I believe I have done. however, looking back on the paper now I do believe that last year's paper was easier than this year's. i don't exactly know. how many sat. online but my school is pretty big and sat it online.

That is probably a bronze so gj. If you want look at this link bronze is usually around 50 but obviously it spiked last year because everyone did it online.
