The British Mathematical Olympiad (BMO) is a challenging 3½-hour paper consisting of six problems, designed to push the boundaries of mathematical thinking. The selection for BMO is based on students' performance in the UK Senior Mathematical Challenge (UKSMC).
Mr. Matthew Pinnick, Head of Maths at Leicester High School for Girls, commented, "Our mathematicians have achieved some outstanding results. This is the premier individual maths competition there is, with the best mathematicians from all schools across the UK and internationally taking part. They should be very proud of their efforts."
