With identical scores of 99.7 percent, four young Filipino math aces were among 65 students worldwide who topped the 2010 Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC), a contest carried out via correspondence that drew about 400,000 participants from at least 40 countries when it was held in August.

The good news came from the Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT), the University of Canberra-based group, which has been conducting the AMC since 1976.

Prof. Peter Taylor, AMT executive director, awarded the medals to the following top-performing Filipino students during simple rites at the Summit Ridge hotel in Tagaytay City on Friday: Nathaniel Ryan Ang, of Xavier School in San Juan, Metro Manila; and Seanne Daphne Ang, Mikaela Angelina Uy and Carmela Antoinette Lao, all of St. Jude Catholic School in Manila.

The other medalists came from Australia, 23; Singapore, 7; Taiwan, 5; Hong Kong and New Zealand, 4 each; Malaysia, Indonesia, Bulgaria, and South Africa, 3 each; Thailand and India, both with 2; and China and South Korea, 1 each, the organizers said.

Seven other Filipino students won Prize Awards, which are given to contestants within the top 1 percent of the AMC: Adrian Reginald Sy, of St. Jude Catholic School; Lorems Yrol Pedeglorio, of the Butuan City SPED Center; Philip Christian Gelera, of UP Integrated School; Miguel Lorenzo Ildesa, of PAREF-Westbridge School; Farell Eldrian Wu, of MGC New Life Christian Academy; Kaye Janelle Yao, of Grace Christian College; and Samuel Christian Ong, of UNO High School.

Fifty other Filipinos got certificates of high distinction for being within the top 2 percent of the AMC.

They were Andrew Lawrence Sy, Keefe Collin Tan, Janssen Lawrence Chan, Jinger Chong, Matthew Angelo Isidro, Andrea Jaba, Austin Eldrich Chua and Vince Benedict Say, all of St. Jude Catholic School; Jan Joshua Cruz, of Pasig Catholic College; John Thomas Chuatak, Gabriel Pua, Shamina Sharlyne Liao, Hans Markson Tan and Thomas Spencer Balete, all of St. Stephen’s High School; Bonn Leif Amalia and Lord Danly Mafe, both of Colegio San Agustin-Biñan;

Lance Christopher Lelis, of Blessed Lights International Christian Academy; Shaquille Wyan Que, Jeremy Vance Yap and Deany Hendrick Cheng, all of Grace Christian College; Clyde Wesley Ang, of Chiang Kai Shek College; Xavier Jefferson Go, of Zamboanga Chong Hua High School; Christopher Joseph Magno, of Falcon Learning Center; Errol John Suarez, of Bicol University-Integrated Laboratory School; Mark Christopher Uy, Mario Antonio Ongkiko and Ethan Zachary Chua, all of Xavier School;

Jason Joseph Fernandez, Niel Benjamin Kho, Amiel Sy, Dale Wilson Garcia II, Ma. Moper Donaleigh Nuñez and Reina Jiana Reynoso, all of the Philippine Science High School; Frederick Matthew Corpuz, of Colegio San Agustin-Makati; Gabriel Angelo Estampador, of San Beda College-Alabang; Andrew Brandon Ong, Henry Jefferson Morco, Geovin Dexter Uy, all of Chiang Kai Shek College; Edward Joseph Ofilada, of Ateneo de Manila University;

John Angel Aranas, of Makati Science High School; Raymart Caasi, of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila; Kevin Clyde Chu, of Sacred Heart School of Jesuits; Francis Daelo, of Malayan Colleges-Laguna; Kevin Christopher Catbagan and Steven Matthew Cheng, both of UP Diliman; Jasper John Segismundo, of Pasig Catholic College; Patrick Allen Tanada, of Pembo Elementary School; Francis Concepcion, of Philippine Cultural College-Main; and Christopher Rabi, of Cebu Eastern College.
