IMO Syllabus Introduction



Here, at SOF Olympiad Trainer, we strive to provide you content of high quality and relevance. We have ensured that all the topics and sub-topics are covered in detail in accordance with the course. A wide variety of questions of varied difficulty have been given in order to ensure proper practice for students.

The syllabus for International Maths Olympiad is divided into four sections for each class starting from class 1st to class 10th . This has been done in order to ensure that it is represented in an easy-to-find way. The sub-topics are given strictly according to the class in which the student is and the Mock Tests and Sample Papers are also provided.

Upto class 5th the Section 1 contains questions related to Patterns, classifications, analogies etc. Class 6th onwards, it contains questions related to Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. For Logical Reasoning Book Click Here

Section 2 is the Mathematical Reasoning section in which questions are based on the topics relevant to the student’s class. Section 3 is the Everyday Mathematics section in which the syllabus is same as that of Section 2. However, the questions are more of the type of Everyday Mathematics and not related to reasoning.

Section 4 is the Achievers Section. This section also covers questions based on the topics of Section 2 but the level of questions is higher. It is advisable to start this section only after the other three sections are complete.
