Westminster Challenge papers and solutions

I have produced answers to some of these papers so that I can mark my students’ work. More will be added as I create them. I encourage students to use these solutions only after having tried the papers extensively on their own first.

Please note that for the most part these solutions are not intended as fully-worked solutions, only so that it is easy to see whether answers are right or wrong. Where, having checked the solution, a student is still unsure how to reach it please do contact me if you need more help. The best way to provide this help will be to have a class to show the student how they would most easily reach the solution themselves.

If you spot any errors or omissions on this page please contact me.

These two books are also particularly useful for 13+ and 16+ preparation:
