60th International Mathematical Olympiad 2019 | Registration, Participation, Admit Card, Result
International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is a great way to identify and uplift the mathematical creativity of children in schools across India and abroad.
Candidates of classes 1 to 12 are eligible to appear for the 1st level IMO. The 60th International Mathematical Olympiad will be held in Bath, the United Kingdom in July 2019. We will receive the most talented young students from more than 100 countries around the world during this period, who will come together to solve challenging mathematical problems in a friendly contesting.
Those who are eligible for the 2nd level exam include top 5% of student’s class wise who attend for the 1st level exam, state wise top 10 rank holders class wise and class toppers from each participating school where at least 10 students from a class appear in the exam and scores 75% qualifying marks.
The event is hosted by the Ministry of Education of the United Kingdom in partnership along with the United Kingdom Mathematical Society and the Cluj District School Department. The IMO 2019 will be conducted together with the International Congress of Mathematicians ICM 2019, an initiative that desires to spread mathematical and scientific knowledge throughout society.
International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO)
The main objectives of the IMO are
- To locate, encourage and test mathematically gifted young people in all countries;
- To encourage friendly international relationships from mathematicians of all countries;
- To generate an opening for the exchange of information on school syllabuses and practices throughout the world;
- To promote mathematics predominantly.
