Past Challenges & Solutions

We use the Cuttle online competition hosting system used by both Bebras UK and the Oxford University Computing Challenge (OUCC). This is part of our progression to closer integration within the UK Computational Thinking Challenges (UKCT) national framework.

Questions appear online as part of the website, so no additional printed paper is required. Solutions are provided below to everything except the most recent challenges in each round. Teachers can contact us directly for a link to the most recent solutions if required.

Have a go!

If you’re keen to get practising, check out these past questions for continual automated practice using the code editor.

For example solutions to past competitions, see below.
