Maths Challenge Success

Year 9 student Andreas Milan has achieved the highest standard in a prestigious national Maths Challenge.

The talented Maths student collected the Gold Award in the UK Mathematics Trust Intermediate Maths Challenge.

The challenge is aimed at students in Year 11 and under who have a flair for the subject.

It involves answering 25 multiple-choice questions in 90 minutes and is sat in school under normal exam conditions. Only the top 40% of students nationally receive a Gold, Silver or Bronze certificate.

Andreas said: “It was not the Maths that I found hard but the way that the questions were worded.

“So that was the challenge for me. This is the first time I have sat anything like this and I really didn’t expect to get the top award.”

Twenty Year 9 students from CBA sat the test and as well as Andreas’s Gold award students Kristien Warren and Josh Champion were awarded Silver and William Bell, Matthew Hanna and Joseph Folan achieved Bronze.
