EGMO 2012: Information: UK Talent Search
EGMO 2012 has been held. The advice below about preparation may still be of interest to those hoping to represent the UK at future EGMOs; training and selection of future team is expected to be on a similar basis to that of the EGMO 2012 team, including UK MOG papers.
We are looking for strong female school age mathematicians who would like to be considered for the UK team at EGMO 2012. If you are interested, please look at the following material and then send the information requested to register your interest.
Resources for preparation
We do not expect potential team members to be able to answer problems at EGMO level straight away without practice and training. People interested in developing their problem-solving ability should look at some of the following resources:
Training and selection process
An exam, the UK Mathematical Olympiad for Girls (UK MOG), was held on 23 June for all those who had expressed an interest in competing for a place on the UK team, and a training camp will be held in Oxford in September for candidates selected based on their UK MOG results and previous experience of olympiad training. The squad will receive some additional training and preparation, but the final team of four will be selected based on next year’s BMO1 and BMO2 results and selection will not be restricted to those on the squad.
Girls must meet the following requirements to be on the UK team at EGMO 2012 (the same requirements as for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO)):
If you are eligible and interested in potentially receiving further training and preparation for EGMO, please contact us, giving your name, school, school year and details of a contact teacher.
We also encourage interested people to join the UK EGMO 2012 training Facebook group.
