EGMO 2012: Information

General information about EGMO 2012

The first European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad was held at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge on 10–16 April 2012. Countries sent teams consisting of their strongest four female mathematicians of school age to compete at EGMO, where they answered four problems in each of two 4½-hour examinations. This venture was inspired by the very successful China Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad which has encouraged many more girls to develop and pursue their interest in mathematics.

We intend that this competition will become an annual event, moving around Europe every year with host countries providing the competition funding. 19 nations sent teams to the inaugural competition in 2012, with a total of 70 contestants; lists of participating countries and participants are available, as are the final results of EGMO 2012. EGMO 2013 was held in Luxembourg.

Background on maths competitions

These began in the 19th century in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. They have spread across the globe since 1959, when the first International Mathematical Olympiad was held in Romania. Read more about maths competitions….


Participants arrived on 10 April (some on 11 April) and departed on 16 April (some on 15 April). The exams were on 12 and 13 April.
