The top 60% scorers of the each level receives gold, silver and bronze certificates in the ratio of 1:2:3. The challenges, especially at senior level are used to identify the most able mathematicians under the age of 19 to be selected for the UK squad, who then will be competing at international mathematical Olympiad competitions.
