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

Students of classes 1 to 12 are eligible to appear for the 1st level IMO. Those who qualify for the 2nd level exam include top 5% of student’s class wise who appear 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 & scores 75% qualifying marks.

IMO Registration / Application Form:-

• Students have to register for the exam only from their school itself. IMO does not accept individual participation of the candidate from any other mode.
• All the information is sent to the schools all over the country / Asian countries along with prospectus, registration forms, posters and other details before the first round and then as the date and venue of the second level is decided, the information is sent to the relevant schools again.
• The students come to know about the necessary details from their school teachers or through the Foundation's official website of sof
