Participation in the competition is free. All school students can take part in the qualifying round and the winners of it are invited to the final round. Winners of the previous Olympiad (with diplomas of any degree) are also invited directly to the finals.
Participants with the best results will be awarded with diplomas and invited (with reduced fee) to the international camps «Formulo de Integreco».
The Olympiad 2020/21 is organized by Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University.
«The Sigma Intellectual Club» is a partner of the Olympiad.

Chronology of eventsAll the news about the Olympiad are posted below from newest to oldest.
On April 4, the final round of our Mathematical Olympiad will take place.
In all countries other than Russia and Uzbekistan, the final round will be held in the distant form.
Before April 3, the participants have to visit the information system is.formulo.org and to choose one of the six time zones (shown as «locations») UTC‑9, UTC‑6, UTC‑1, UTC+2, UTC+6, or UTC+10 according to the preferrable time of start.
On April 4 at 11:00 (local time of the corresponding time zone) they will receive an email with the Olympiad problems. They will have 4 hours to solve them + 20 minutes to scan or photograph their solutions. The solutions are to be sent to the jury address [email protected]formulo.org.
Some more details will be included in an email we will send to the participants soon.
Dear participants of the Olympiad and their teachers! We are publishing the full results of the qualifying round.
Attention! The results of the appeals are not including now.
We are pleased to inform you about the results of the qualifying stage!
You can see your score in your account.
Here are the solutions.
A solution to each problem was scored out of 7 points. The participants who reached the threshold score from the below table will be invited to the final round.
Grade — Score
- R5 — 25
- R6 — 18
- R7 — 16
- R8 — 20
- R9 — 21
- R10 — 16
- R11 — 23
You can send us an appeal (a request to reconsider the solution of a specific problem) not later than January 25. For this purpose, please send a message to the jury in your account.
The final round will take place on February 24 or a neighboring date depending on the country. The exact date and addresses for your country are given later. The winners of Olympiad 2019/20 (those with Diplomas I ‑III) can participate directly in the final round.
Unfortunately, the jury wasn’t able to publish the results of the qualifying round in 2020 :( Take our apologies for that. The results will be ready up to January 15, 2021.
HAPPY NEW 2021 YEAR!
Dear participants from Czech Republic and their parents,
Due to the epidemic situation in your country the Organizing Committee has decided to extend the term of submitting your solutions until 23:59, November 19.
Dear participants of the Olympiad,
Please pay attention to the fact that the text of the problems has been slightly updated.
This concerns problems 5.6, 6.4, 9.7, 10.3, 10.5, and 11.2.
Here is the qualifying (remote) round of the competition. You can solve problems until November 12, 2020 inclusively.
Please remember that your solution of every problem should include not only the right answer but the full reasoning as well.
We will be happy if your friends who like mathematics also participate. However, every assignment should be done individually; otherwise, your submission will not be considered. The winners of Olympiad 2019/20 (those with Diplomas I‑III) can participate directly in the final round.
How to submit solutions
The solutions should be written in English, Esperanto, French, Georgian, German, Kazakh, Persian, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Hebrew or Uzbek. Use of other languages should be agreed with the organizers in advance.
The solutions should be submitted to the Jury by November 12 in our information system:
You can upload both text files (in TXT, DOC, DOCX or PDF formats) and scans of paper works (in JPG and PNG formats):
- each solution must be in it’s own file,
- the total number of files should not exceed 10,
- the files should not contain the surname, name and other personal data of the participant,
- you do not need to repeat the text of the problems in your paper.
From now on the only way
to upload your solutions of the qualifying round
is in our information system!
You can send your questions (but not the solutions of problems) to the organizers to [email protected]formulo.org.
Also you can refer any questions about our system by e‑mail: [email protected]formulo.org.
There will be two rounds in the International Mathematical Olympiad «Formula of Unity»/«The Third Millennium».
