Princethorpe Pupils Rise To The Intermediate Mathematics Challenge
Back in February pupils from Princethorpe College took part in the 2023 UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Intermediate Challenge, a prestigious national problem-solving competition that recognises the best young mathematicians in the country.
The Challenge involves answering multiple choice questions and is sat under normal school exam conditions. The papers are then marked by UKMT and the best pupils in the country are awarded Bronze, Silver or Gold Certificates.
The competition is aimed at pupils in Years 9, 10 and 11 and 84 Princethorpe pupils were selected to take part. It is a demanding exercise designed to stretch and test pupils’ mathematical skills, so the College is delighted that this year, Princethorpe’s mathematicians achieved exceptional results.
Congratulations to Olivia Monk in Year 10, who was awarded a Gold certificate, and took the award for best performing pupil in school and to the 18 pupils who received Silver and 23 pupils who Bronze certificates. A huge well done to all who took part!
