An international competition now also available for Pakistani students!

Southeast Asian Mathematical Olympiad

SEAMO is the brainchild of Terry Chew, the author of books like ‘Wicked Mathematics’ and ‘Unleash the Maths Olympian in You.’ The exam is based on extensive research by the team in the Terry Chew Institute of Mathematical Olympiads and on the developed framework by examining multiple olympiads. The framework is known as the RA*CE framework and is used in the Terry Chew academy. The academy has produced several students who have excelled in multiple international olympiads like Kangaroo, SASMO, NMOS, RIPMWC, SMOPS, Mathlympics, SMO, AMC8, AMC10, and many more.

SEAMO is an international Math Olympiad competition that is currently held in over 18 countries with over 20,000 participants. Since 2015, it has helped students gain global recognition in the field of mathematics and widened the network of Southeast Asian Math Olympians to encourage sharing of mathematical knowledge among countries within the region. In the process, it provides encouragement to students as they build their passion for mathematics. With papers suitable for all levels, it stretches the capabilities of young Olympians 1 step at a time, which motivates them to move progressively towards their full potential.
