Rated 4. With substantial inputs from our teachers present in Australia, we have designed a course that goes into the depths of mathematics for students studying in their year 3 — This course is based on the MCYA Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians pattern, which has been the guiding program for students with an aptitude in mathematics, to bring forth the talent and potential they have within. Thus making it the largest mathematis competition ever. The students are marked on their ability to solve tricky problems whose level of difficulty increases as the student progresses further in the question paper. Undoubtedly there is a huge distinction for anyone who scores above 90 percentile and its a matter of great honor to do so. AIMO is one of the competitions used to determine which students are selected to a number of invitation-only events including other mathematics competitions and special enrichment classes. Students who perform well in the AIMO will progress through these other events and some will achieve the ultimate honor i. There is a direct invitation for students who are prize winners of the AMC and the rest have to apply by themselves. Requirements A trial class is mandatory.

Students started with 30 marks, so that a student who answered all questions incorrectly would record a total score of zero, while one who answered all questions correctly would record a score of In , the format was changed so that no penalties were incurred for incorrect answers to the first twenty questions, and for each of the last ten questions, a correct answer gave eight marks, no answer gave three marks, and no marks were given for an incorrect answer; the total score remained the same at In , the format was changed once more.

This time the first ten questions are still worth three marks each and the next ten are still worth four marks each, however the last ten are now once again worth 5 marks each. To make it harder to guess the most difficult questions, the last 5 questions required integer answers between 0 and inclusive.

The total score possible was thus reduced to The first 25 questions have remained with the same mark allocation, however the last 5 questions have been altered. Although still requiring integer answers between 0 and , the mark allocation has been changed to 6 marks for Q26, 7 marks for Q27, 8 marks for Q28, 9 marks for Q29 and 10 marks for Q30, bringing the total marks to The competition is supervised by staff of the individual educational institutions, and the Australian Mathematics Trust reserves the right to conduct re-examinations in order to preserve the integrity of the competition, if it believes that students have not attempted the paper under sufficiently stringent conditions.

Syllabus[ edit ] There is no official declared syllabus which determines the scope of the problems presented to the students. However, all problems can be solved without the use of calculus. Awards system[ edit ] Despite the name of the competition, students are allocated awards for their performance relative to other students in their region, of the same year level. For Australian students, this means their State or Territory, and for other students, their country.

Although the personal data such as date of birth and gender are collected, this is not used in the percentile ranking, which is only determined by the raw score. The award scheme is as such Prize — Students above the All students receive a certificate, and prizewinners are awarded an additional monetary sum or book voucher.

Students who achieve the maximum score are awarded the Bernhard Neumann certificate. In , a record 10 students in Australia, and 23 in Singapore achieved the maximum attainable score. A re-examination was carried out in order to determine the Singaporean medallists. All students receive an analysis sheet along with their certificate, which records their answers for each question, along with the correct answers.

In , students from 38 different countries entered the competition. Format[ edit ] The competition paper consists of twenty-five multiple-choice questions and five integer questions, which are ordered in increasing difficulty. Students record their personal details and mark their answers by pencil on a carbon-mark answer sheet, which is marked by computer. There are five divisions in total: Senior for years 11 and 12 , Intermediate for years 9 and 10 , Junior for years 7 and 8 , Upper Primary for years 5 and 6 and Middle Primary for years 3 and 4.

Students are allowed 75 minutes 60 minutes for the two primary papers to read and answer the questions.

Calculators are not permitted for secondary-level entrants, but geometrical aids such as rulers , compasses , protractors and paper for working are permitted. Primary-level entrants may use calculators and any aids normally found in a classroom. The original points scheme, which was in operation from inception until , consisted of three groups of ten questions.

The first ten questions were worth three marks each, the next ten four marks each, and the last ten five marks each. Students were deducted a quarter of the marks for a given question if they answered incorrectly, so that a student randomly guessing the answers would gain no numerical benefit on statistical average.

Students started with 30 marks, so that a student who answered all questions incorrectly would record a total score of zero, while one who answered all questions correctly would record a score of In , the format was changed so that no penalties were incurred for incorrect answers to the first twenty questions, and for each of the last ten questions, a correct answer gave eight marks, no answer gave three marks, and no marks were given for an incorrect answer; the total score remained the same at In , the format was changed once more.
