Challenge & Olympiad

UCT Invitational Mathematics Challenge and Olympiad

The top participants in the UCT Mathematics Competition are invited to take part in a second round, the UCT Invitational Mathematics Challenge. There are two levels: Juniors (grades 8 and 9) and Seniors (grades 10, 11 and 12). The Challenge questions require answers only, with no working or proofs.

There is just one Challenge paper, but the papers are ranked separately.

The 2022 UCT Invitational Mathematics Challenge will be held on Saturday 18 June.

The 2022 UCT Mathematics Olympiad will be held on Saturday 23 July. Separate Junior and Senior papers of just six questions will be set, which may contain common questions. Full solutions and explanations are required.
