ok, this may seem slightly sad but here's one of the main things that has annoyed me for the past 2 years- while i do well in school subjects with little effort, i always mess up the maths challenges(one hour papers of 25 problem solving questions)- in my junior and first intermediate one, i have come out with only silver certificates. the fact that i come out with this after doing well in school subjects makes me feel like a try hard idiot-school performance is determined mainly by effort i feel while these challenges are far more of a reflection of ability.
that said, i was still wondering if anybody had any tips on how i could get a gold award in the intermediate challenge i am doing in a month
i would like any tips you have to offer e.g. past paper resources, questions that come up often, useful formulae to know for it which aren't taught at int2/ standard grade/gcse level,
i am sitting it on the friday after the official testing day listed on ukmt website
