Students in Year 9, 10 and 11 took part in this year’s UKMT Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, achieving fantastic success.
In total, 35 certificates were awarded to our students with 4 Gold, 16 Silver and 15 Bronze certificates. The UKMT organises national mathematics competitions and other mathematical enrichment activities for pupils aged 11-18.
40% of pupils are awarded certificates, with the top 6% receiving a gold certificate, the next 13% silver and the next 21% bronze nationally. This means that 35 students at Manchester Academy were in the top 40% of young mathematicians who participated in the challenges.
There were exceptional performances by Year 11 students Zalan Rehman, Mohamed Karama, Awab Alshami and Aicha Al Saty who achieved a gold certificate, and qualified for the European “Pink Kangaroo” Mathematical Challenge, which they completed on March 21st. Zalan Rehman’s performance was phenomenal as he was awarded the “Best in School” certificate for achieving the highest score.
There were also excellent performances by Adlan Anazim (Best in Year 10), El Mehdi Hussein (Year 10), Shamama Mohammed (Year 10), Habib Sharif (Best in Year 9) and Hadia Haved (Year 9) who were awarded the Silver Certificate.
Mr Nizeyimana, KS4 Maths Coordinator, said all students taking part showed brilliant determination in solving unfamiliar mathematical problems by applying mental, logical and analytical skills.
