What is it?
This is a 3-day competition happening within the prestigeous Singapore Institute of Management (SIM). It is a Qualifying round for youths to be a part of the Finals of the World Mathematics Championships® 2019Participants engage in our 9 different types of rounds within 6 skills categories.

Who may enter?
Any youth still engaging in compulsary education. This is aimed towards those in Grade 9 and below (so for many they will be in the first year of an IGCSE Mathematics course during the month of this Qualifier).

When is it?
Friday 1st March from 2pm. The gala celebration is on Sunday 3rd March, ends by 9pm.

What about accommodation?
This is a non-residential competition, and so participants may independently travel to and from the Qualifier each day.
That said, we are delighted to have agreed a partnership with Nanyang Boarding House (NBH) for some of you who would like to enjoy sharing more time with like-minded peers. Check-in can be Thursday 28th February or Friday 1st March and check-out can be Sunday 3rd or Monday 4th. Please contact us if you would like to take up this option.
Transfers within Singapore to and from NBH or SIM need to be arranged independently. The country is very well resourced with accommodation options, mrt rail and bus systems, as well as taxis/grab. We do not have any contacts to help with this and so are therefore not in a position to make any recommendations either.

What do participants get?
Lots of intangible rewards! And also...
An attainment transcript containing the percentile ranks in each round, each skill attribute and a descriptor of their demonstrated strengths.
Medals are awarded to the better performing participants in each of the 6 skills categories.
Those who excel best in all 6 categories are also issued with a Golden Ticket invite to the Finals.
