In partnership with the UK Mathematics Trust, the FMSP organises a national team mathematics competition for students in years 11-13.

For further details of this years competition please visit STMC competition page of this website.

The FMSP has developed materials to help schools prepare their students for the STMC. These resources can be found at STMC Training Resources for Schools.

To help prepare for the STMC or just to exercise your mathematical problem solving skills you could try some questions from the regional heats and the final in previous years.
