BMO Round 1 was marked in Cambridge on 8–10 December.

The following candidates scored 58 or more out of 60. Gold medals are awarded for scores of 59 or more, silver medals for scores of 50 to 58, bronze medals for scores of 42 to 49, certificates of distinction for scores of 28 and above. The report for schools, with statistics on results, is also available.
