As part of the selection process for the national team, Johnathan sat many previous tests including two British Olympiads, two Australian Olympiads and one Asia-Pacific Olympiad.

“A highlight was the Australian Mathematics Olympiad,” says May. “Johnathan received a silver medal and featured among the top mathematicians across the country. He has done King’s very proud.”

We wish Johnathan every success in the forthcoming training and the upcoming Olympiad.
