BVIS Success in South East Asia Maths Competition

10 March 2017

  • IMG_3557

SEAMC 2017 is over but the excitement that we had came home with us all the way from Indonesia, and we cannot wait to share with everyone our story.

Day one, we arrived at Soerkarno-Hatta International airport at 2pm, unsuspecting of the friends we would made, the problems we would face, and most importantly, the fun we would have. Resting at the hotel for one hour, we had time to take showers and get dressed. Down we went to the ballroom, where we would meet students from other schools. Many mathematical starter games were played, familiarising us with different students and also warming us up for the math problems we had to do the next day.

The next morning arrived with a delectable breakfast served in the lobby. Very soon after, everyone was stuffed to bursting. We got on the bus and headed to British School Jakarta, where over 300 students came all the way from different countries in South East Asia including some past winners from Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand, to compete against each other in search for the owner of the SEAMC cup 2017. The first round, Individual round, arrived with 40 thorny questions to be solved in just 90 minutes. With a short break between, our team refilled the energy and got ready for the Pass Back round. Finally the day ended. We were exhausted but full of excitement nonetheless. We headed back to our hotel with lots of stories to tell.

The final day of the competition was here. Though exhausted, we were ready for the final team rounds. We were shocked as soon as we saw how hard the questions were, especially with such short time. But we pulled through nonetheless. Then came the energiser round where our physical abilities and mental arithmetic were pushed to their limits. After that, we arrived back at the hotel, getting formally dressed for the awards ceremony. The awards ceremony was a huge success for BVIS.  Ben (10V) came 1st in the individual round out of over 270 students from all over South East Asia.  Ben, Hai Linh (10I) and Huong (10V) also came 3rd in the energiser round.  The SEAMC Plus team, Nha (11B), Nguyen(11V) and Dang (12V) came 9th overall.

As SEAMC came to a close we were both mournful and satisfied about what we experienced during this trip. Mournful about the fact that we would soon leave Indonesia and satisfied about what we managed to do this year in SEAMC. Finally departing for Vietnam, we promised ourselves to try even harder next year so that it would produce even better results.
