IMO Syllabus for Classes 1 to 10 - Latest exam pattern
The International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) syllabus is a crucial aspect of IMO preparation. It covers various topics that are tested in the exams and familiarizing oneself with the syllabus is key to success.
The syllabus for IMO is quite vast and is based on different curricula followed by CBSE, ICSE/ISE, and various state boards. The latest IMO syllabus is proficiently designed to build a conceptual math learning approach and is based on the fundamental concepts of mathematics.
It's important to note that the IMO syllabus, exam pattern, and marking scheme are issued by the Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF). The exam is divided into four sections – Logical Reasoning, Mathematical Reasoning, Everyday Mathematics, and Achievers Section.
For classes 1 to 4, there are a total of 35 questions asked from these sections, and for classes 5 to 12, there are 50 questions. The section-wise syllabus details for each class are as follows:
i) Logical Reasoning: This section covers topics related to logic and reasoning like patterns, classifications, analogies, verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning, etc.
ii) Mathematical Reasoning: This section covers math topics that can be solved using simple mathematical formulae. These topics are relevant to the student’s class.
iii) Everyday Mathematics: This section tests students’ conceptual knowledge on topics covered in mathematical reasoning.
iv) Achievers Section: This section requires deep thinking and application of one or more math concepts. Scores obtained in this section play a critical role in determining the top performers.
