The Sri Lankan Mathematics Challenge
Competition 2013 was held on 6th April at the OBLT, Faculty of Science,
University of Colombo. The final scores (out
of possible 500) of the participants are given here.
The top ten students (shown in bold)
will be invited for the next round of the Sri Lankan Mathematical
Olympiad 2013. They will undergo extensive training and after a series
of tests, at most six students will be selected to represent Sri Lanka
at the IMO 2014.

Congratulations to all the prize winners
at the Sri Lanka Mathematics Competition (SLMC) 2013! We hope you enjoyed
the mathematical challenges you encountered at the SLMC 2013 and that
they sparkled your interest in Mathematics.
The top 40 from the SLMC 2013 will be
invited to a one-day training camp and then to Sri
Lanka Mathematics Challenge Competition (SLMCC) 2013. The top 40
from SLMC 2013 born on or after 1st of August 1996 will be invited
to the International Mathematics Competition (IMC) Team
Selection Competition 2013. High Distinction certificates will be
awarded to those who scored 113 or more and Distinction
certificates to those who scored 102 or more.
The students who have qualified to the
next rounds will be contacted soon with more details.
For those who did not go through to the
next round, don’t be discouraged; it was an extremely competitive
exam and it just wasn't your day. So, keep practicing and broaden your
mathematical thinking by solving problems and puzzles.
We apologize for the inconvenience
caused on the exam day to students at the Peradeniya
Central College and would like to thank the parents, the school
teachers and the students for being patient and understanding.
Hope to see you around next year with
much more interesting problems at the SLMC 2014!

Sri Lanka Triumphs again at IMO 2012
one Bronze medal and an Honourable Mention certificate!!
Sri Lankan team led by Supun T. Samarakoon (Leader) and Mahishanka
Withanachchi (Deputy Leader) came up with an
excellent performance at the 53rd International
Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). The International Mathematical Olympiad is
an annual world championship in Mathematics for High School students.
It was started in 1959 with only 7 countries, but over the years it has
established itself as the most prestigious Mathematics competitions of

Lankan Mathematics Olympiad 2010
Sri Lankan Mathematics Competition 2010 was held as scheduled on
April 24, 2010 at 12 exam centers including Jaffna, Batticaloa
and Trincomalee. Of the 3265 registered
applicants 2844 sat the competition.
Once again it was a massive volunteer effort from the initial
planning and setting of the paper to finally marking and mailing
results to schools – some of the past IMO participants worked day and
night. GRBR Gamlath, one of the Bronze medal
winners last year, learned programming and created a database to handle
admission cards and sort out marks. This time we paid invigilators,
supervisors and exam coordinators provided by the Ministry of
Education. This increased the cost of the competition substantially.
But the ministry provided us exam centers free in all the provinces
except Colombo. In Colombo we set up the exam centers.
SLMC 2010 paper yet again contained interesting and challenging
problems. The paper was set, moderated, checked, translated and type
set by 6 persons working for many hours without any payment. Nipuna R. Samarasekera,
2009 GCE Advanced Level island best in the physical science stream,
obtained the highest score of 163 out of the maximum possible 190. The
average of all those who sat the competition is 79.30. There are 147
High Distinction Certificate winners (cut off
- 112), 136 Distinction Certificate winners (cut off
- 103) and 69 Honorable Mention Certificate winners. Honorable Mention
Certificates are awarded for good performances in the younger age
groups. Cut offs for Honorable Mention Certificates are as follows:
Born in 1994 - 100, Born in 1995 - 96, Born in 1996 - 90, and Born in
1997 – 86.
