Kumud Sahni, 06 Aug 2018

IMO Syllabus 2018-2019 - Candidates appearing for International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) exam must follow the SOF (Science Olympiad Foundation) prescribed IMO 2018 syllabus to prepare for it. The IMO Syllabus 2018 is available for all the Classes – 1 to 12 . With the syllabus SOF also gives exam pattern, marks distribution, no of questions asked, time duration etc. The IMO Syllabus helps candidates to plan their preparations to successfully clear the IMO exam. Topics and Syllabus of IMO for both level I & II remains the same, only level of difficulty increases. To get the detailed classwise IMO Syllabus 2018, read below.

 

  • The SOF has given three dates for level I of IMO exam i.e. December 4, 13 and 18.

  • Level I exam is conducted during school hours in the respective schools of the participants.

  • The admit card for Level I is issued by the respective schools while for Level II, it is available online.

  • Level II is conducted only for Classes III to XII.
