International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) 2017-18

The IMO (International Mathematics Olympiad) is a means to identify and encourage the mathematical creativity of children in schools across India and abroad. International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) is conductd by Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF).

The International Mathematics Olympiad is conducted in two levels
  • Level 1: The first level of the test is organized in the respective schools of the participants during the school hours.
    • The level 1 competition is a written objective-type test of 60 minutes duration comprising 35 objective-type (Multiple Choice) questions for class 2 to class 4 and 50 objective-type (Multiple Choice) questions for class 5 to class 12.
    • The question paper consists of :
      • Logical Reasoning
      • Computers & IT
      • Achievers Section
    • There will be separate question papers for each class
    • The medium of the test is English
    • CBSE, ICSE/ISC and State Board syllabus is followed for setting the test papers
  • Level 2: The qualifiers to second round would include the following
    • Exams are conducted off-line
    • Top 5% of candidates class wise who appear for the 1st level exam.Due weightage to marks scored in different sections will be given. Each section is accorded separate weightage.
    • Statewide top 10 rank holders class wise.
    • Class topper where at least 10 students from a class appear in the exam & scores 75% qualifying marks

Practice does NOT make you Perfect.
Only perfect practice can make you PERFECT

How to get good Rank in International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO)

Most of the Olympiad exams are conducted on the similar syllabus that kids are studying at school. It means that they do not require additional reference books for the preparation of these exams. However, at the same time questions asked in these exams are quite different than what kids learn in the school. Questions are trickier and conceptual.

To excel in “Olympiad Exams”, it is essential for the students to understand the exam pattern, evaluate and prepare themselves on the Olympiad standard questions.

OlympiadHelper.com is the most trusted and comprehensive Olympiad exam diagnostic and preparation tool. It provides an objective, in-depth practice platform to the students preparing for various Olympiad examinations.
