Singapore Mathematical Olympiad 2014

Today was the day of the SMO 2014 Junior and Senior Category Round 1. (Tomorrow's Open Category!) Round 2 will be held on 28 June and 5 July for the Round 2 competition. Junior and Senior are for 14 and below and 15-16 year olds respectively. Open is for all who are 18 and below.

(I will try to keep this note brief.) The SMO consists of 2 rounds, a short answer round (Round 1: 35 questions, each worth a mark) and a long answer round (Round 2; working's also graded in this 5 question, 50 mark paper).

The full mark is 85 (I trust everyone can do their addition ;D) and to get into the top 30 in Singapore you normally only need about 40-50 marks.

The point of this note, however, is just to wish everyone in Singapore all the best (@Victor Loh @Charlton Teo @Cedric Tan @Wang Jianzhi @Happy Melodies @Yuxuan Seah @Joshua Ong and others, of course) and hope you do your best! :D Good luck!

P.S. Sorry that this note was 1 day late XD

P.P.S. YAY! This is the first note I've ever written!

@Joshua Ong For what Junior? Cut-off score should be around 15-20, I don't think it will be more than 20 seriously. Happy Melodies · 3 years, 1 month ago

How was SMO @Yuxuan Seah ?? Did you take part in Open??? I managed to solve 23 questions (no time because I reserved some time for checking) for Senior (with 1 careless now) and 15 questions for Open... Happy Melodies · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Happy Melodies I did 29 questions for Junior but I got 7 wrong! So I just got 22/35 for Junior. Gj for senior though! For open I did around 15 but I'm not too sure of 4 of them. That makes 11. But 15 questions is good :D Great job overall! :) (I'm only Sec 1) Yuxuan Seah · 3 years, 1 month ago
