Senior Mathematics Students Place in World Top 7%

The results from United Kingdom Mathematics Trust Senior Challenge are in and YCIS Beijing Secondary students once again achieved fantastic results! The UKMT Senior Challenge is an international mathematics competition geared towards Year 11–13 students with over 2000 schools participating and over 100,000 individual students competing globally.


This year, nine students from YCIS Beijing placed within the top 7% in the world, earning them the highly coveted gold certificate. Huge congratulations go to Jiyoon Cho, Sunny Lee, Shuwen Liu, Junyoung Kang, Jiwon Park, Wan Teng Lee and Julie Zheng for earning this award through their hard work and determination. A very special mention goes to Jaeyeon Cho and Charles Yin (who has recently been offered placement at Oxford University) for receiving not only the gold certificate but also “Best in Year Level” awards for Years 12 and 13 respectively.


Many of these student also received “Top in the World” and “Top in China” awards during last year’s Cambridge International Examinations, which speaks volumes not only for their own academic prowess but also the calibre of education the YCIS Beijing teaching staff have provided them. Again, congratulations to those who placed within the top 7% as well as all students who took part in the challenge. We look forward to seeing more results and your continued success in the future.
