A FORMER Fyling Hall student who achieved a MMath Honours Mathematics degree from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne has now reached new heights, winning a prize from the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) for outstanding examination performance in the final year of her degree.

Carly Perry (23), of Ugglebarnby, who attained a degree of Master of Mathematics with First Class Honours, is one of only two students chosen from her university to be awarded the prize.

She received the award at a ceremony after her graduation, and told the Whitby Gazette: “I kept the fact I had won the prize a secret from the rest of my family so it would be a surprise for them at graduation.

“They were very proud and pleased for me when they heard my name called out.

“It was a very intensive course with lectures every day and it was very hard work.”

As a result of this impressive accomplishment, her name is now followed by the letters AMIMA, and she has been given a year’s membership at the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.

She can now participate in any activities they hold such as conferences for early career mathematicians and also receives a mathematical magazine six times a year.

Miss Perry said: “I hope the membership adds to my appeal to future employers and shows that I always put in a lot of effort.

“I am pleased and relieved that my hard work has paid off.”
