The Rationale of ISMC

  • There is great enthusiasm among Primary students to compete in mathematics competitions. This is an extremely good sign for the progress of mathematics education. However, most mathematics competitions seem to be testing students' knowledge beyond the school syllabus and exposing what the students cannot do while a mathematics competition should actually be a platform to reveal what students can do!
  • ISMC aims to encourage the young students to compete at the international level. It also helps to identify best talents among students. Its syllabus is mainly common with the Singapore Maths (Primary) syllabus. Thus, students can take part in ISMC without advanced beyond-the-grade-level knowledge and marathon of special training trying to learn in hours all topics which are new and unfamiliar to them.

Who can participate?

  • All students from government schools, private and international schools in Malaysia

Competition Level

  • Level P2 for students born 2014 (8 years old) and 2015 (7 years old)
  • Level P3 for students born 2013 (9 years old) and younger  (for e.g. 8 and 7 years old)
  • Level P4 for students born 2012 (10 years old) and younger 
  • Level P5 for students born 2011 (11 years old) and younger 
  • Level P6 for students born 2009, 2010 (13 years old) and younger

The younger students can compete at higher level if they feel prepared for the level.
