Mathematics Olympiad is a talent search examination, conducting by Mathematics Association, involving schools from Mumbai and nearby districts. This is a platform for students to challenge themselves and test their Mathematical knowledge and skills. It is a great opportunity for students to experience the atmosphere of IIT Bombay, which is one of the premium academic institutions of the country. It can help students to prepare for other competitive examinations that they would face in the future. The Olympiad is overseen by some of the most renowned Professors of the country, who are faculty at the Mathematics department of IIT Bombay.
- Students from class 8th, 9th and 10th can appear for the Level 1 examination.
- Students from class 11th and 12th are eligible for Level 2 examination.
All one needs to crack the Olympiad is common sense and problem solving skills. Here is a rough list of topics in which one might expect questions. It is by no means a comprehensive and exhaustive one. It is meant to give the students a brief idea of the topics on which questions will be asked.
