The European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad is an international mathematics competition similar in style to the International Mathematical Olympiad, with two papers taken on consecutive days. Participating countries send teams consisting of four female mathematicians of school age. The first EGMO was held in Cambridge, United Kingdom in April 2012. The list of host and participating countries, results, scoreboards can be found on the official EGMO page. You can read more on the history of EGMO here. The problems and solutions of the previous years are also available at the official page, under “Past and Future EGMOs”. For example, for EGMO 2020, the problems (in many languages) and the solutions (in English) can be found here.

Participation in an EGMO is by invitation only. Each invited country is entitled, subject to available space, to send a team consisting of up to four contestants, a Leader, and a Deputy Leader.

Application, registration of countries: please check the annual regulations and the timeline, including all important deadlines.

Application of students:

A country’s Contestants should normally be citizens or residents of that country, and should be selected through that country’s national Mathematical Olympiad or equivalent selection programme.

If you are interested in the selection process of a country, please check the national Mathematical Olympiad site, or contact the IMO team leader, based on the following list:

The list of EGMO team leaders can be found here:

Contestants must have been born less than twenty years before 1 April in the year of participation at the EGMO. Contestants must have been normally enrolled in full-time primary or secondary education on or after 1 December in the year prior to the EGMO, or, in the case of home-schooled students, must not have received a high-school diploma (or equivalent), and must be working toward such a credential on 1 December.

In special circumstances the EGMO Advisory Board can approve minor deviation from these rules for specific countries on request. Information on deviations must be available to other participating countries.
