Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which ages of student is this course appropriate for?

    The Senior Maths Challenge is usually taken by students in school 13 and below (England and Wales), S6 and below and S2 (Scotland) or Year 14 and below (Northern Ireland). Entrants are typically aged 15-18 and so this course is most suitable for students in this age group, but advanced younger students can benefit too.

  • How long does access to the course last?

    Access to the free course is instant on purchase. The enrolment duration is set to 30 days but may be freely renewed after it expires. Materials are accessed through the course website so no downloads are required.

  • How long does the course take to complete?

    Allow a couple of hours in total for a typical student to complete most of this free course, but it could take longer if students really engage with trying to solve the hardest problems themselves.
