MEI Maths Challenge
Maths students from West Thames College have beaten the odds to secure trophies at the Mathematic Education Innovation’s (MEI) Further Education Maths Challenge. This competition is for post-16 students who are working towards gaining a Functional Skills maths qualification or improving their GCSE Mathematics grade.

The final of the competition held at Goldsmiths University is a culmination of many regional finals held in colleges and sports stadiums with 40+ teams represented from across the country.

The West Thames College team consisted of Ako Rostami, Erosha Araujo, Dmytro Horlov, Kateryna Bodnar, Stephanie Espinoza Sevilla and Thomas Hall. Despite having one of the smallest teams in the competition, our students managed to win the following trophies in two of the three categories available:

- 1st place in ‘The Funkies’ category which is for students whose highest GCSE grade is a grade 1.

- 3rd place in the ‘Ein2steins’ category which is for students whose highest GCSE grade is a grade 2.

West Thames college Maths Lecturer Gloria Ackah who was in attendance with our students, said: "It was a great pleasure to attend MEI Maths challenge with the students, and I am immensely proud with what they have achieved which is a real testament to their dedication and hard work."
