Mathematical Olympiad

The Mathematical Olympiad is a mathematics competition in which young people from all over Switzerland who are enthusiastic about mathematics can exchange ideas and compete against each other. The competition consists of several rounds as well as numerous preparatory meetings and a week-long camp for the finalists. Our goal is to share our enthusiasm for mathematics with young people, to support them intellectually and for them to gain valuable professional and social experience together with their peers. You can read more about the Olympiad here.

First Round 2023 results!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the first round of the Swiss Mathematical Olympiad 2024! Over 1500 participants from across the country took part and we hope you enjoyed thinking about the questions. 202 participants qualified directly, with a handful of additional wildcards being issued. The cutoffs were 145 points for the Senior Category and 220 points for the Junior Category.You should receive an email soon with your result. The second round will take place in December, but prior to that, there are three preparation meetings to learn new theory and exercises on the 28.10, 11.11 and 2.12. You will receive further emails about these if you qualified for the second round.Last but not least, a special mention to the two best participants: Felix Xu, with 437 points, in the Senior Category and Jan Richert, with 394 points, in the Junior Category. A hearty congratulations to them both!



IMO 2023


GOLD! After 17 years, Team Switzerland finally brought home a gold medal from IMO. Mathys Douma, from Lycée Cantonal de Porrentruy, had an outstanding performance to bring home the glory. Bora Olmez (International School Basel), Jonah Osterwalder (Gymnase de Renens), Felix Xu (Kantonsschule Wettingen) won bronze medals and Ivan Pouly (Gymnase de Renens) won an Honorable Mention, with Hongjia Meng (Kollegi Kantonalle Mittelschule Uri) completing the team. Kudos also to the Liechtenstein team (Tobias Marxer, Leonhard Hasler, both from Liechtensteines Gymnasium) for their two Honorable Mentions as well.
