Completing the gruelling two-and-a-half hours of computer and written assessments, the girl and boys were testing themselves against the best in the world, with fellow competitors coming from the USA, Australia, Hong Kong, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
The St Jo’s team collectively performed best in the area of algebra – arguably the most difficult category – gaining the highest possible ranking. They earned a place in the top three percent of all students internationally in their age group (not just those taking the tests). They were also in the top five percent for number and spatial awareness.
All seven St Joseph’s students were recognised for their individual achievements, too. Congratulations in particular to Ademide, Emilia and Joshua on gaining the Distinction Award for a place in the top five percent or better. We also celebrate the outstanding work of Alexander, Ewan, Joshua and Jozef.
