As Muttley said, please do not discuss questions/solutions on the forum or over PM until theyre available on the ukmt site. The exam is live for ~24 hours as its done in different parts of the world. Ive asked for the thread to be locked.

As you seem to be an international student who was doing gcses a couple of years ago, I can only assume it directly applies to you.

Wow that's amazing, I answered 21/25 with all correct, score 109/125. Do you think its enough for BMO1? Grade boundaries have only been up to 108 as highest but this paper, whilst hard, was easier than other SMCs...
horrible im in year 11 but could only do 12 or 13
reckon i only got 10 or 9 right so sad could have got 11-14 correct tho

I got 19/25 last year (101 points I believe) and got through to the BMO1 so I would assume so, i know nothing about grade boundaries though
