Senior Mathematical Challenge

UK Mathematics Trust

Taking place in your own school or college on Tuesday 7 November 2017, the Senior Mathematical Challenge is a 90-minute multiple-choice question paper, designed to stimulate mathematical thinking and problem-solving in large numbers of pupils. 

Papers are returned to the UKMT for marking, and results are emailed within three weeks, along with statistics from across the nation and extension activities. Certifcates are awarded, and high-scoring pupils are invited to participate in follow-on competitions.

Past papers can be downloaded from our website at
