In light of COVID-19 and to ensure the health and safety of candidates, SEAMO is providing an Online Examination option in support of countries that are worst affected. We are committed to delivering an exam that not only protects the well-being of students and teachers, but one that is equitable, stringent and upholds the integrity of the competition.
Math Olympiad is the highest form of creative thinking and logical reasoning. It trains students to develop critical thinking skills that is required to excel in school and in the workplace.
As only 50-60% of Math Olympiad concepts are taught as part of the school curriculum, students are encouraged to expose themselves to Math Olympiad lessons or practice material before joining the competition.
This form of mathematics is suitable for students who are interested in expanding their mathematical knowledge beyond the school syllabus or building up their portfolio to secure scholarships or seats in top schools.
