National learner leaderboards

What the national learner leaderboards are for

Our national learner leaderboards will show learners where they are, relative to other learners in the country. The learner leaderboards will show your level of mastery for the year, plus the number of questions you've done and atoms you've earned for the current month.

To appear on our national learner leaderboards, you must opt in, either when you sign up, or on your My Account page. Opting in to the leaderboards will enable you to take part in competitions like #1MillionMaths and #HeadSTARt. It also means that you agree that your name and school can appear on the leaderboard.

Where to find the national learner leaderboards

You can find a link to the national learner leaderboards on your learner home page, by scrolling down to the Leaderboard section. You can also find a link in the main dropdown menu. The leaderboards will display results for the current month.

How the learner leaderboards work

There are separate leaderboards for each subject and grade (Mathematics Grade 8 - 12 and Physical Sciences Grade 10 - 12). Within each grade, the learner leaderboards have four leagues, each representing how much of the curriculum you have mastered. The leagues are:

Platinum: 75 % - 100% mastery
Gold: 50% - 74% mastery
Silver: 25% - 49% mastery
Bronze: 0 - 24% mastery

Within each league, your ranking will depend on your overall mastery (stars earned), then atoms earned and lastly on questions answered. Mastery is shown for all work done in the current year, whereas the number of questions completed and atoms earned are for the current month. The leaderboards are shown for the current month, and are updated once a day.

How to move up the leaderboards

As you master sections and chapter, your overall mastery will increase, and you will see stars appearing on your practice dashboard. These are mastery stars. To move into the next league (e.g. from bronze to silver), you must practise regularly, and ensure that once you have mastered a section, you move on to the next section.
