Frequently Asked Questions on Math Olympiad

  1. Are there any IMO Sample Papers for a student going to write the test for the first time? 
    Yes, all the schools registered with the SOF are sent sample papers for IMO. Even the authority’s official website has IMO sample papers for class 1 to class 12. You will benefit from them for both the levels of the exam. Also, you can practice using Cuemath’s IMO Sample Papers. In IMO Sample Papers, you will find that the content is quite elaborate and explanatory. We have included detailed step by step solutions that will prove powerfully helpful in your preparation for IMO. Our approach to problem-solving has been fine-tuned by the in-house math experts. Primarily, and wherever feasible, we help the students to locate the given information in the problem itself, to understand what is required to be derived or calculated, and to develop solid reasoning before attempting the solution (charting a clear path from given information to finding the unknown).

     
  2. When is the Math Olympiad Result declared?
    After the examinations are over, the IMO Result will be declared within 8 weeks. You can see it on the official website. The IMO 2nd level results are also sent to the respective schools.
