Dear Students,

You are invited to take part in the Singapore and Asian Schools Math Olympiad (SASMO) which will be held on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. S1-S4 students are all eligible for this contest.

SASMO is one of the largest math contests in Asia with over 100 schools in Singapore participating. Besides, unlike most math olympiads that target the top 0.1% of students, SASMO aims to be accessible to the top 40% of the student population. 

Click here if you would like to sign up for the contest. The deadline for signing up is 1 Feb 2018. You will need to pay a nominal sum of $20 for the contest fee but you can do so through Edusave. More information on payment will be provided in a later email for those who have registered.

Please email Mr Chen Jinquan at chen_jin_quan@sst.edu.sg if you have any enquiries on the above.
