In perhaps the best ever showing by any school since the introduction of the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad, Raffles Institution has swept 9 of the top 10 awards, and 19 of the top 30 individual awards in the Junior Section.

The boys in the Senior Section did commendably well, with 2 in the top 10 and 6 in the top 30.

In another remarkable show, 5 of the top 10 and 19 in the top 30 individual awards went to Rafflesians in the Open Section.

RI is also placed in the top 3 for all 3 team awards, with the actual ranking to be released on 3rd September 2011. Stay tuned for more good news!
