Olaf gained an exceptionally high mark in the Senior Mathematical Challenge round of the competition, which is a 90-minute, multiple-choice challenge.
The competition encourages mathematical reasoning, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems.
Following Olaf's success, he was invited by the trust to compete in a subsequent competition, the 'Andrew Jobbings Senior Kangaroo', which is a 60-minute challenge containing 20 problems. Olaf won a certificate of merit, which is won by less than 25% of the competition's candidates.
Llio Marian Davies, Mathematics A-level tutor at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor, said: "Winning a gold medal in this competition is no small feat: Olaf was competing against some of the most capable individuals in the field of mathematics from all over the world."
Llio Marian Davies added: "One of the great advantages of studying A-levels here at the college is the fact that we have subject experts on each of our A-level courses, which is very advantageous for our students. We are extremely proud as a college of Olaf's success, well done indeed."
