Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which ages of student is this course appropriate for?

    The Junior Maths Challenge is usually taken by students in school years 7 and 8 (England and Wales), S1 and S2 (Scotland) or Years 8 and 9 (Northern Ireland). These students are typically aged 11-13 and so this course is most suitable for students in this age group.

  • Could an able year 6 (or younger) student benefit from this course?

    Yes, absolutely! I often do these questions to stretch able students in the 10-11 years age group. There is no minimum age limit to enter the JMC just a maximum. There is also a Primary Maths Challenge aimed at Years 5-6 and a First Maths Challenge aimed at Years 3-4, but if they find those questions too easy this could be a great choice to push them further.

  • How long does the course take to complete?

    Allow a couple of hours in total for a typical student to complete each paper, and another 8-10+ hours for the Go for Gold full course, but it could take longer if students really engage with trying to solve the hardest problems themselves.
