International Maths Olympiad (IMO) 2022 - Indian Talent Olympiad

Since 1989, the International Maths Olympiad (IMO) has provided a stage for students to exhibit their mathematical abilities. Mathematics is a subject that has always involved many formulas and a lot of practice to put them into effect. It is a scoring subject that calls for conceptual mastery from the students.

The saying, “Practice makes perfect”, is something we’ve all heard, and it applies to maths more precisely. The International Maths Olympiad (IMO) is a forum where students not just pass the test and get a rank but also master the foundations, which the majority of pupils nowadays lack.

ITO – International Maths Olympiad Registration

For all Olympiad exams offered by the Indian Talent Organisation, the registration procedure is the same. Since ITO doesn’t promote individual registration, students should submit their names to the school organiser in order to apply for the ITO Olympiad. Schools must register with the ITO in order to permit students to take part in Olympiad exams.

Frequently Asked Questions on ITO-IMO 2022

What is ITO-IMO?

Since 1989, the International Maths Olympiad (IMO) has provided a stage for students to demonstrate their mathematical abilities. Mathematics is a subject that always requires a lot of practice and learning how to apply formulas in real life. Students must be able to master concepts because it is a highly scoring subject .

What should I do to prepare for ITO?

Students must refer to their board’s specific syllabus. Apart from that, they should also consult the Indian Talent Olympiad’s Olympiad books, as well as previous years’ question papers.

What are the ITO IMO preparation tips

  • The ITO IMO exam often only includes multiple-choice questions.
  • IMO workbooks include several subjects from the curriculum, but in various formats, to start conceptual learning.
  • Students have an advantage over concepts to tackle challenging questions because the syllabus is the same and is followed by the institution. Due to this, the test is extremely difficult, and each year, more people apply to take it.
