I'm gutted. I was ill on the day, so big egg for me. Anyway, how did everyone else do? My friends said that the paper is easier than last year's. Apparently, there are three people invited to Round 1 of British Mathematical Olympiad from my college this year. But sadly, I am not included.

Here's my result:

Correct: 24, so Score = 121.

The paper was slightly easier than last year's, although I don't know how they know who has qualified for the BMO, since the cut-off marks won't be announced for a week or two.

I don't know how the school knows it. I think UKMT anounce a initial cut off marks which is slightly higher then the actual one before the exam. You are definitely invited.

NO, Maths is for clever people, not for not clever people. Although they can learn... but never be quite as good... ish...

I found it!

If the boundaries are similar to last year then I got a silver! Although most people on here seem to have gold!
