National Mathematical Olympiad of Singapore

NUS High School of Mathematics and Science has been organising the National Mathematical Olympiad of Singapore (NMOΣ) since 2006. The objective of this competition is to instil a love for and to generate interest in Mathematics amongst Primary school students, as well as to identify and nurture Mathematical talents in our youths.  

Over the years, NMOS has raised interest and enthusiasm in mathematics and is now an annual event that our primary schools and their students look forward to participate. The competition is growing in strength every year. More than 5400 participants from 160 primary schools and educational institutions took part in this exciting mathematics competition in 2016.

This year, the International Mathematics and Science Olympiad (IMSO) 2017 will be held in Singapore. IMSO is an annual competition in mathematics and science for primary school students. NUS High School has been appointed by the Gifted Education Branch (GEB) as the Lead Agency for IMSO since 2011, to select and train the IMSO national team. We are also glad to share that the Singapore Mathematics team won 1 Gold and 5 Silvers in the 13th IMSO in 2016.  

In preparation for IMSO 2017, the top twenty pupils from the NMOS will be shortlisted for a training programme conducted by NUS High School. Within the training squad, twelve pupils will be selected to form the two National Mathematics teams (six pupils per team) to represent Singapore in IMSO 2017.
