You don’t need to sweat out in the sun to know the whens and whats of the Indian Maths Olympiad. Just visit the official site for all the information.

Internet is Your Friend:

Use Time as a Tool

The Internet can be a good or a bad friend. Choice is yours: Facebook, Twitter, Memes and silly You Tube Video or else sites that offer practice tests, share information on how to solve difficult maths problems or discuss the level of questions.

Use Time as a Tool:

Stick to a Schedule

Yes, time is an effective tool if used efficiently. Start your preparation well in time to score better. But, if you are unable to, then ask you teacher for the number of hours required to devote to a particular topic. Divide your time and develop a time table to practice all the Olympiad topics thoroughly.

Stick to a Schedule:

Practice makes Perfect

It is of extreme importance that you stick to the schedule prepared for your Indian Maths Olympiad. Yes, you may slip up, though our advice is, Don’t. But, readjust your time table or cover the backlogs as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Practice makes Perfect:

Online Tests are Important

There’s nothing really to be added to this tried and tested quote. Practice, practice and continue to practice till you become perfect. Every question and every exercise has to be practiced.

Online Tests are Important:

Consult Teachers

Ok, you have practiced till you think you are perfect. Now test your ability with online and physical tests. Attempt them in a time bound manner. Click here  for some online practice tests.

Consult Teachers:

Whenever you practice or attempt Olympiad practice tests you are going to face problems on certain topics and questions. Keep a separate copy and make a note of them. Then take that notebook to your teacher and she/he will help you to excel in those.

Stay Relaxed:

Stay Relaxed

Easier said than done, we agree, but taking stress will not help you in any way. So learn to relax, take deep breaths, go for a walk or share a cup of hot chocolate with your parents. It’s just another exam, so treat it that way.
