I could pretty much answer all of them apart from the shape question. I only found out I qualified the day before so I didn't do any past papers to compare. Was it easier or harder than average?

Strange, I thought the shape one was far too easy to be a question 4.Overall harder than average. Didnt try question 6 and got the answer to 5 but it seems really hard to prove. Question 3 seemed super hard, maybe i was just doing it wrong but it took me so long to prove.

I am very bad with shape questions. Was question three the 2021 binary representation question? Did you get 2^10? I kept drawing out the circles and it didn't make any sense to me. Question 5 was a really nice solution I think the mean was only a whole number when 8N +1 was an odd square number

I've not done a paper before so I don't know. Maybe 40?

I would expect the BMO2 threshold to be 42 and the leaderboard to be 53 or more.

BMO 1 marking will be done during 5–12 December 2021. Last year BMO 1 marking was done during 5–12 December too and high scores were published on 16 December 2020. So we can expect something similar this year.

The workload doubled this year as only three questions needed to mark last year. Publishing date might be delayed.

I think that's a bit high. I found the paper a lot harder than the 2019 paper, where 50+ was the leaderboard. I would say the 2021 paper is of a similar difficulty to the 2018 paper, so maybe 30+ distinction, 48+ leaderboard, and 32-40 for BMO2 threshold depending on year group.
I hope they have different thresholds for different year groups as then I actually will have a chance for BMO2

I think yes. According to those old team members, top 20 in BMO1 will be invited.

It is not strictly top 20, it is top students but weighted by age and gender, so if the top 20 were all y13 boys, they won't all make it.
