DS has qualified for the JMO but, having read the blurb on the UKMT web page, I'm not quite sure how the certificate thresholds work. I have a feeling that I heard or read somewhere that a child has to ace Part A in order to get anything more than a Certificate of Participation. Would anyone know if this is correct or I'm misinfomed?

Presumably you've read this page? It will vary from year to year and thresholds change each year.

Well done to your DS for getting through :)

Thanks, Guest55.

Yes, that's the page I'd read. It doesn't mention anything about needing to ace Part A and I fully understand that thresholds can vary but I still have a niggling feeling that I heard or read somewhere that they had to get full marks in Part A. I understand that the advice is to spend 45 minutes on Part A and the rest on Part B but if they have to get full marks on Part A then maybe they should make sure that's all correct. Or am I just coming up with complete nonsense here?

I am looking at the instructions - it says roughly 30 mins for section A.

It also states ' A good candidate will have done most of section A and given solutions to at least two questions in section B'.

I've checked in the UKMT year book and there are no further details but there is a list of all the medal winners.
