The UKMT Junior Maths Challenge will take place on Thursday 25th April 2024. Schools who have a timezone that is either UTC+5 or more (5 or more hours ahead of the UK) will sit the challenge on the following day.
Students usually take this paper in years 7 and 8 in England, S1 or S2 in Scotland or Years 8 and 9 in Northern Ireland, but the competition is open to entrants from younger year groups too. Many schools overseas also enter students, but entrants must be of an equivalent age and be students at official UKMT test centres – applications from private individuals or tutors is not allowed.
I’ve collected answers to all of the most common questions I’m asked by students, parents and teachers about the Junior Maths Challenge on the page here so take a look now and make sure you’re in the best position for the Junior Maths Challenge in 2023!
