Singapore and Asian Schools Math Olympiad (SASMO)
Eligibility: SASMO is open to all Primary 2 to 6 and Secondary 1 to 4 (Class 7 to11) students. The class for student in the academic year 2017-18 will be considered as the class for SASMO 2018 edition. Each level has a differentiated paper and contains 25 questions.
Difficulty level: SASMO is a math contest that stretches not only the brightest students, but is aimed at instilling confidence for all students.
SASMO is open to all Grade 2 to 10 students (Primary 2 to 6 and Secondary 1 to 4 students). Each level has a differentiated paper and contains 25 questions within 2 sections:
Section A: 15 Multiple Choice Questions (2 points for each correct answer; 0 point for each unanswered question; deduct 1 point for each wrong answer)
Section B: 10 Non-routine Questions (4 points for each correct answer; no penalty for wrong answers)

Contest Date: The contest is usually held in early April every year. In Mumbai it will happen on 8th April at a designated centre.
Awards: Tops 40 % of the students from each participating country will get medals in the order top 8% (Gold), next 12% (Silver) and next 20% (bronze). Perfect scorers (100% score) will get Cash rewards too.
Exemplary performers will get an opportunity to represent their country in Singapore International Math Olympiad Challenge (SIMOC) held in Singapore in June-July. Singapore International Math Olympiad Challenge (SIMOC) is a unique concept of mathematics competition which not only tests your ability to solve mathematical problems on pen and paper but also tests your ability to work as a team to play interactive mathematical games and solve puzzles. SIMOC gives you an opportunity to compete with top mathematical talents from around the world and learn from each other as a team. Individual and team recognition awards are up for grabs.
The contest and the preperation for it helps
- to arouse students’ interest in mathematical problem solving
- to develop mathematical intuition, reasoning, logical, creative and critical thinking.
Contest Fee: If registration is done from school, then 990/-
If appearing as individual candidate then 1980/-.
What you get to prepare: You get sample papers and one previous year contest question paper with solutions. Syllabus is available online and it is similar to our Indian curriculum however the format of the contest challenges logical thinking and application of those concepts.
Created in 2006, SASMO is one of largest math contests in Asia. It has expanded from 155 local participants in 2006 to more than 20 000 participants from 19 countries in SASMO 2016. More than 100 schools from Singapore took part in SASMO 2016.
The SASMO Team with the support of Advisory Council spend countless hours carefully developing contest papers which will touch on both school and Olympiad maths. This combined effort allow participants to do better compared to pure-Olympiad papers, since they are familiar with some questions and are able to put on their thinking caps for others, bringing out the inner mathematician in them.
