MATHSHELPER FOR STUDENTS 

Firstly I would like to recommend a couple of books that are superb in helping you improve at olympiad type problems. A Mathematical
Olympiad Primer by
Geoff Smith (available
from UKMT) Initially these problems can seem impossible, but with perseverance you CAN improve at them. I did dreadfully in the BMO1 when I took it at school but I can now do the majority of questions they throw at you. (Alas I still find BMO2 impossible. I would wager that you could give me the rest of my life to solve question one from the 2010 paper and I would still not be able to do it!) Everyone gets stuck at some point or other on a problem; for example
It can be argued that you only learn anything from the times you make mistakes or can't solve things. Secondly you can find the British Maths Olympiad here with all the past papers, but without answers unfortunately. The UKMT provides a very cheap booklet with BMO problems and solutions from previous years.
