Success for UTC Students at National Maths Competition

A UTC student has been selected as one of only 1000 students in the UK to take part in a national Maths competition.

Christian Marriot was one of 15 A-Level UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park students who took part in the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) Senior Mathematical Challenge on Tuesday 6th November.  

The UKMT is a registered charity whose aim is to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics, organising mathematic competitions and other mathematical enrichment activities for UK secondary school pupils.

The senior mathematical challenge is a problem-solving, multiple choice paper which is completed in school.

Due to his success Christian has been invited to take part in the British Mathematical Olympiad Round 1, which is a three-and-a-half-hour paper with six problems to solve. For his achievement he will receive a gold certificate and an award for the highest result in the school.

Three more students will also receive certificates as they scored in the top 60% of participants. Cerys Evans was awarded a silver certificate and Charlotte Timms and Jordan Wolny will both receive bronze.

Another student who took part in the challenge was Emma Caroe, who despite only being in Year 11, has been invited to take part in the ‘Senior Kangaroo’ where she will compete against students much older than herself. Only around 6000 students are invited to take part, making this a fantastic achievement for a 15-year-old pupil.

Emma said: “I enjoyed the challenge of the Senior Maths Challenge and I’m very excited for the next round!”

Dr Sarah Clark, Principal, said: “Well done to all our students who took part in the Senior Mathematical Challenge and good luck to Emma and Christian in their next challenges!”
