The success of these students stands as testament to the talents and abilities possessed by all of the boys at Wilson's School.

Having performed very well in the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, eight Wilson's students from years 9 to 11 went on to the IMOK Olympiad, and gained impressive results.
In particular, Rubaiyat Khondaker (10G) with 60/60 in the Hamilton Olympiad was top scorer in the country. He is the second Wilson's pupil to achieve such a perfect score.
Six other Wilson's pupils gained Merits for their performance in the Olympiad, many being just one good answer away from a distinction.
