**3. I’m Interested in the IMO but My School Has Not Received Any Information Regarding Olympiads, How Can I Approach the Same?**

**Ans:** In case the school is not registered with SOF, it can still request the prospectus by contacting SOF via phone (0124-4951200) or email (info@sofworld.org). Students must fill the registration forms with the required details and submit them to their respective schools.

**4. My School Does Not Want to Register for the IMO, Can I Register Myself Individually?**

**Ans:** While the SOF encourages the registration of the schools with the foundation for accepting students for the Olympiad exams, students can also opt to register individually, as mentioned on the official website, in case the school is unable to participate. Students can directly contact SOF via phone or email and express their desire to participate in IMO exams. Such students will be further guided by the SOF regarding their registration process for the IMO exams.

**5. Are the eligibility criteria for both level 1 and level 2 the same for the IMO exam?**

**Ans:** The eligibility requirements of students for IMO level 1 and IMO level 2 tests are very different. While all students in grades 1 through 12 can take the IMO level 1 test, only students in grades 3 through 10 can take the IMO level 2 exam. Additionally, students must meet a few extra criteria for the level 1 IMO exam and level 2 IMO exam at the class, national, and worldwide levels, which are detailed on Vedantu's website and mobile app.

**6. How can a student prepare well for the IMO exam?**

**Ans:**** **The chapters that are taught in school are used to design the majority of the International Mathematics Olympiad tests. Exam preparation does not necessitate the use of any additional reference books. Vedantu, on the other hand, has comprehensive study materials for the International Mathematics Olympiad exam on its website and mobile app. The study material is provided free of charge so that students are familiar with the fundamental concepts of Mathematics to pass the IMO level 1 and level 2 exams. The questions on the IMO exam papers are not the same as the questions that are taught in school.

**7. Why is it important for students to attempt the IMO exam?**

**Ans:**** **The IMO examinations assess a child's skill and potential to a great level. It allows them to thrive in today's competitive environment and mathematical skills along with improving their confidence. This exam encourages students to dig deeper into scientific facts and gain a better understanding of them to improve their reasoning, analytical, and problem-solving abilities. They also place a high priority on the area where they lack skill so that adequate training can be provided to help them improve. This acts as an overall mind calibre development.

**8. What is the application process of IMO?**
