IMO exam paper is conducted at two levels, i.e. Level 1 and Level 2. Students of Classes 1st to 12th are considered eligible to take part in IMO. More so, Level 2 is organized for Classes 1rd to 12th. A minimum of 10 students are chosen from each school. Candidates are obliged to register from their respective schools only since SOF does not encourage individual participation.
3. What Do We Understand About the Student Performance Report (SPR) in the IMO Exam?
Every participating student who appears in the SOF conducted IMO exam is given a Student Performance Report (SPR) which is a detailed assessment of how the student performed in the level 1 Olympiad exam. However, the main motive of SPR is to make familiar the student and his/her guardian/parents, proficiency of student’s mathematics knowledge and analysis answers. This is generated to enable the student to understand their areas of strengths and weakness in absolute terms and more so on a competitive scale comprising millions of students of their respective class who appeared for the Olympiad.
