About The IMSO
International Math and Science Olympiad (IMSO) is a worldwide math and science competition for elementary and middle school students under the age of 13. Participants are chosen through a selection process.
Mandate of our Organisation
For the International Mathematics and Science Olympiad, The Science Olympiad Foundation serves the sole purpose of preparing and sending teams to represent the country at the IMSO.
Format of the Examinations
IMSO is an individual competition. The questions consist of 2 parts: theoretical and exploration questions. The questions are constructed based on Mathematics and Science elementary school curricula, reference books, and other relevant sources, which cover intellectual reasoning and creativity. Instructions and questions are in English, and so should the answers be. All other languages will are considered for marking.
