SASMO (Singapore & Asian Schools Math Olympiad)


SASMO, which began in 2006, is one of Asia's major math competitions. SASMO 2019 had almost 34 000 attendees from 21 nations. We already have over 38 countries and territories in 2021.

The SASMO Team spends numerous hours meticulously developing contest papers that span both classroom and Olympiad math, with the support of the SASMO Advisory Council. Compared to pure Olympiad papers, this combined effort allows competitors to do better because they are comfortable with some questions and can put on their thinking caps for others, bringing out their inner mathematician.

SASMO contests aim to expand students' latent thinking talents by setting realistic and high requirements; their participation in SASMO will aid them in improving their classroom math skills as well as their higher-order thinking skills (HOTS).

Test Format
SASMO is open to students from grades 1 to 12. The contest has a time limit of 90 minutes. Each level includes a differentiating paper with 25 questions divided into two sections:

15 Multiple-Choice Questions in Section A (2 points for each correct answer; 0 point for each unanswered question; deduct 1 point for each wrong answer)

10 Non-routine Questions in Section B (4 points for each correct answer; no penalty for wrong answers) 85 points overall (to avoid negative scores, each student will begin with 15 bonus points)

Awards
Perfect Score Award (Full marks) – qualifies as a significant award for IJHS
Gold Award (Top 8%) – qualifies as a significant award for IJHS
Silver Award (Next 12%)
Bronze Award (Next 20%)
Honorable Mention Award (Next 10%)
Certificate of Participation (Next 50%)

A medal and an award certificate will be given to the top 40% of participants. Students who receive FULL MARKS will receive a Perfect Scorer Certificate and a Personalized Medal with their name on it, as well as S$100 cash, up to a total of S$S5,000 for all Perfect Scorers.

The top 40% winners are invited to compete at SIMOC 2022 to be held online on July 17, 2022. The top 20% of winners are invited to compete in STEAM AHEAD 2022 to be held online on November 26, 2022.

*In the event that the COVID-19 situation worsens, SIMOC will be held online. In case of any change in the schedule of the exam, the revised date will be shared on our site.
