Southeast Asian Mathematical Olympiad: How it is Beneficial to Students?

Students seek different ways or platforms when it comes to performing their optimum and attaining excellence in Academics. Olympiads are such platforms that not only help students identify their talents, but also bestow them with their current standing at National as well as International level.

There are various kinds of Olympiads where students are pitted against thousands of students from India as well as abroad. A student should choose the Olympiad based on his/her aptitude and interest. For instance, students interested in challenging their mathematical skills can opt to appear in the recently launched Southeast Asian Mathematical Olympiad (SEAMO), India.

SEAMO, introduced in 2016, is an International platform to identify and discover the mathematical wizards through creative challenges and prepare them for more challenging mathematical competitions. It also brings the opportunity for students to benchmark their performance against National as well as International students.

In India as well as in other participating countries, SEAMO is conducted by Terry Chew Institute of Mathematical Olympiads (TCIMO) PTE LTD, Singapore. This year, SEAMO is being conducted in 13 Countries - India, Australia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Romania, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Thailand, USA & Vietnam.

In India, SEAMO will be conducted in the following Cities - Delhi (South), Delhi (Punjabi Bagh), Delhi (Dwarka), Delhi (East), Delhi (Rohini), Delhi (JanakPuri), Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Gurgaon, Noida, Greater Noida, Assam, Allahabad, Amritsar, Bangalore, Bhopal, Bhilai, Bhubaneswar, Bokaro, Boisar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Dhanbad, Durgapur, Gorakhpur, Gwalior, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Kolkata, Kochi, Lucknow, Meerut, Mhow, Muzaffarpur, Mumbai, Nagpur, Patna, Pondicherry, Pune, Raipur, Ranchi, Salem, Shaktinagar NTPC, Siliguri, Thane, Trichy, Tirunelveli, Vadodara, Varanasi, Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam & Wardha.

SEAMO Mission

  • To provide a platform that would stretch the aspiring Olympians a little at a time, which would let them experience success and be motivated to move progressively until they reach the level of excellence for other challenging Mathematical Olympiad competitions.

  • To inspire and to embrace enthusiastic young minds to participate in Mathematical Olympiad.

  • To provide resources for students of various levels to hone their problem-solving skills and to prepare them for more challenging Mathematical Competitions.

Benefits of appearing in SEAMO:

  • Students will be Awarded National and International Rankings.

  • Students will get a clear benchmarking of their performance vis-a-vis International Students.

  • Top performers will be Awarded GOLD / SILVER / BRONZE Medals. Top 0.5% of participating students of India will get Gold Medals, Next 1% participants will get Silver Medals and the Next 1.5% participants will be awarded with Bronze Medals. A ‘Certificate of Participation’ will be given to all the remaining participants.

Note: The percentages allocated to awards are approximate and will vary according to the number of students taking each test and the distribution of their scores.
