Competing at Nationwide Maths Challenge

Date: 26 April 2023

Students from East Surrey College in Redhill and John Ruskin College in Selsdon took part in the nationwide MEI Maths Competition Cluster Final 2023 at Goldsmiths University competing against 15 other institutes.

Over 25,000 students took part in the competition and 17 of our students made it to the regional final. During the final, students had to complete a Tarsia puzzle and a Kahoot quiz.

Students were competing within three categories:

  • The Funkies (students who have a grade 1, or no prior qualification in Maths)
  • The Ein2steins (students who have Grade 2 as their highest prior qualification)
  • Go Forth (students who have Grade 3 as their highest prior qualification).

Meg Conacher, a Math Lecturer commented: “We’re exceptionally proud of all our students who took part in the Maths competition. Throughout the experience, each and every student showed growth in confidence, teamworking and determination.”

Anastasiia, ESOL Level 1 student added: “The competition was an experience I’ll never forget; it was so cool! As a team we had so much fun - we got to meet other students from other colleges, and develop our Maths and communication skills.”
