The Mathematical Society of the Philippines (MSP) is inviting all High School students to participate in this year’s Philippine Mathematical Olympiad (PMO). The PMO, now on its 18th year, is a national competition designed to select the best secondary students in mathematical problem-solving in the Philippines.
The winners of the PMO will receive cash prizes and will automatically qualify to join the training pool for the 2016 International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), from which the our country’s representatives to the IMO will be chosen. The IMO is the largest and most prestigious international mathematics competition among secondary school students from all over the world.
General Guidelines and Scheme of Conduct
The 18th PMO is open to all high school students. It shall be carried out in three stages:
