European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad

EGMO 2021 Exam Details

EGMO, European Girls Mathematical Olympiad, is an international school-level competitive exam for girls to evaluate their mathematics skills. A team of four girls, competent and adept in mathematics, studying at any affiliated school in the participating countries, is sent to represent the respective countries in EGMO. Only four girls are selected from each participating country every year, and it is an extremely prestigious opportunity for them to represent their nation on a global platform.

EGMO consists of two tests. Each test consists of 3 problems, and the time duration for each test is 4 hours. The tests are conducted for two consecutive days. India has been participating in EGMO since 2015 and the selection process is conjoined with IMO (International Mathematics Olympiad). All the relevant information about EGMO 2021 is provided below for the reference of aspiring students.
