Talented students at DLD College London have excelled in a prestigious, national mathematics challenge organised by the UK Mathematical Trust, securing a series of top accolades.
As they put their problem-solving skills to the ultimate test, a quartet of mathematicians from the multi-award-winning school – Ryan F, Vladimirs C, Wongtat V and Yutong G – were presented with the top Gold Awards in the highly-regarded UK Senior Maths Challenge. Reflecting their hard work and technical ability, the first-place prizes also secured the students a coveted place in the next stage of the national challenge, ‘Andrew Jobbings Senior Kangaroo’ competition.
Following the recent instalment of the challenge, all four students are celebrating considerable success once again. Ryan F and Vladimirs C both passed the Senior Kangaroo with a Merit, the highest grade of pass; Vladimirs’ result is particularly impressive as he has only been studying A Level Maths this term in Year 12 and competed against a large number of Year 13 students from across the UK who are studying Further Maths A Level in addition to A Level Maths.
Irfan Latif, Principal at DLD College London commented: “Congratulations to our high-performing and diligent students achieving top awards in such a prestigious national competition. Challenges such as those organised by the UK Mathematics Trust support our school curriculum and form an integral part of the wider learning experience, allowing our students to extend their learning beyond the classroom while developing personally.”
