UKMT Individual Intermediate Challenge
Each year, selected Verulam mathematicians across all year groups are given the opportunity to participate in one of the UK Mathematics Trust’s (UKMT) Challenges.
Most recently, seventy students from years 9, 10 and 11 sat the UKMT’s Individual Intermediate Challenge virtually, during lockdown, on 4th February.
The competition was undertaken by students across the UK, testing their mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using mathematical techniques.
Students prepared for the challenge individually and with support from Mrs Cornmell and Ms Rosler through Google Classroom.
The school is incredibly proud of all students who participated in the challenge this year and congratulates every one.
The top-scoring 40% of participants across the UK are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates. Across the Verulam group, 64% of students were awarded medals this year – an amazing achievement and a reflection of their talent and dedication.

A small number of the very highest performers nationally are invited to take part in the next rounds. Thirteen Verulam students will now go on to sit the next rounds on 18th March 2021.
