Do you have what it takes to take on other brilliant and sharp minded international students in 2018 version of Youth Math Challenge? If in the affirmative, then brace yourself up and take on this challenge to unleash your math skills and brilliance to the world and get recognized globally with lovely international certification and added cash prizes.

The International Youth Math Challenge is an international mathematics competition that enables students from all countries to prove their math skills and to unleash their creativity.

The International Youth Math Challenge is one of the biggest online math competition for students from all around the world. You can win awards and cash prizes worth over 500 USD, qualify for the final round, become official IYMC ambassador in your country, or join the international IYMC network for outstanding students - take this unique opportunity and participate today!


The qualification round is the first stage and consists of five math problems: A, B, C, D, and E. The problems range from geometry to number theory to make sure that everyone finds interesting problems to work out.

In order to qualify for the pre-final round, you need to solve at least three (under 18) or four (over 18) of the problems correctly. The submission deadline is 30.09.2018 23:59 UTC+0 (i.e. September 30, 2018). All participants receive certificates after.

The solution file may be typed digitally (recommended) or it may be a clear picture of your handwritten notes. In case you have multiple pictures you may use an online tool to combine the pictures to a single file.

After answering the questions, capture your solutions and convert them to pdf format. Then VISIT HERE to submit your answers.

Pre-Final Round Participants that have solved the qualification round successfully are qualified to participate in the pre-final round. The problems will be more challenging, but even more interesting!
The pre-final round consists of 15 different problems that vary in difficulty, points, and topic. All topics from geometry to number theory are included.

There are three types of problems that give you two, four, and eight points:
 • 6x Basic Problems: The pre-final round includes six basic problems (lowest difficulty). A correct solution to a basic problem adds two points to the total score.
 • 6x Advanced Problems: The pre-final round includes six advanced problems that are more difficult. A correct solution to an advanced problem gives four points.
 • 3x Special-Creativity Problems: The pre-final round includes three advanced problems: These problems do not have a final answer, but the approaches and interim result give between zero to eight points. This problem type represents real examples of mathematical research and requires special originality and creativity. It is possible to reach up to 60 points in total.

Students have to reach at least 25 points (under 18 years) or 35 (over 18 years) to qualify for the final round. (The limits may be increased or decreased depending on the number and quality of results
