The Challenge paper

There will be a total of 20 multiple choice questions, they will start with easy questions to encourage pupils in their own ability and gradually get harder throughout the Challenge. Pupils will have 45 minutes to complete all questions. They can use as much scrap paper as they wish but no calculators, rulers or other aids may be used.

The questions will encourage your pupils to think outside the box and approach problems in a logical manner.
