Got 104/125. Definitely could’ve done better, dropped easy marks on the mechanics question and the inscribed triangle question, solved it in minutes after the exam. That last question was really hard tho, don’t know how people find the solution with the 20 mins they’d have left for it. Also dropped easy marks on the fridge combinatorics problem. Don’t know why, but my brain just doesn’t understand counting.

Hope boundaries are lower so I can qualify for the Bmo, though I doubt I’ll be lucky enough.

I know what answer I put for everything I answered, checked it against the UKMT solutions on their website, and added up my score. (20 correct, 1 incorrect, and 4 missed).

I got minimum 100. Yh I'm annoyed i also messed up on the fridge one. I put 36. All of my errors were dumb mistake that I probably could've fixed if I didn't spend so long on the last question (which I still managed to get wrong)

All the questions are quite easy, it's the fact you can't see it, you just have to identify it. That's what I hate about challenges like this.

True. All of my mistakes were dumb ones. The maths challenge is still enjoyable though
