The Maths Olympiad is a Problem Solving competition which takes place throughout the year. Students sit for five separate exams with just five problems to answer each time – sounds easy? Well, it’s certainly not at all, and it is aimed at the extension maths students.

This year there were over 9000 students across Australia and New Zealand entered in our Year 7 and 8 divisions, with individual prizes going to students in the top 25 per cent or better.
