Two of our Year 8 students, Alexandra Shevchenko and Maximo Ivakhno, did outstanding well in the recent UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge. Out of around 250,000 entrants, Alexandra came in the top 500 for her category and Maximo in the top 3,000. Alexandra qualified for the Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad, where she went on to obtain a Merit certificate for a hugely impressive performance. Maximo qualified for the Kangaroo competition, and only just missed out on the Merit by a small margin.
All of this is made even more impressive by the fact that these competitions are designed for students in Years 9-11, and our two champions are still only in Year 8!
