What's Next?

Math Challenge Eliminations leads to 2 types of contests: Individual and Team

To qualify for the Individual Round, the student must be one of the Top 20 Merit Awardees in the particular grade or year level, regardless of area.

Metro Manila is divided into 4 areas: Area 1-Manila, Makati, Pasay, Taguig, Pateros; Area 2 - Pasig, Marikina, Mandaluyong, San Juan, part of QC; Area 3 - Las Pinas, Paranaque, Muntinlupa; Area 4- Caloocan, QC NOrth, Valenzuela, Malabon, Navotas

To qualify for the Team Round, the school must be among the Top 12 scorers in the particular area. The school's score is determined by adding the scores of the school's top 3 students in the particular level.

All qualifiers, whether Individual or Team, will be posted here.

Hi Ms. Villame,

My son is one of the merit awardees- first honors in Grade 2. You have mentioned in your earlier post that the Team Area Finals is on Feb 10. May I ask when is the Sectoral Individual scheduled? Please enlighten.

Thank you.

I agree with the comments that Area 1 is the hardest area to compete in and also the most saturated area.

Area 1 is composed of Manila, Makati, Pasay, Taguig and Pateros - 5 cities (with Manila definitely saturated with the most schools in NCR). Area 2 and 4 both have 5 cities, but how come Area 3 just has 3 cities - Las Pinas, Paranaque and Muntinlupa? It should be noted that Las Pinas, Paranaque and Muntinlupa's school population are definitely smaller than any of the cities assigned in Area 1, 2 and 4.

My students noticed this before and they are envious with other schools who gets to compete easily during Area Orals while we from Area 1 are competing against the giants.

Maybe MTAP should make the Area grouping according to Team scores results in the Elimination round. Class A teams get to compete with 1 another then Class B and so on. By then the competition will be fair, challenging and really competitive. Unlike now, there's Area that is too easy to win cause basically overkill and no competition at all. I am sure the schools will not mind going to different venues if this will gives their students more chance of winning. Just a thought.

For questions on Taguig results, you may contact Dr Isidro Aguilar, the Division Math Supervisor(DepEd). I just consolidate reports.
I guess you can reach him in the Division Office.
By the way, we dont rank students who scored lower than 35.
