THE MAIN PRINCIPLES

Our Olympiad is open to both Russian and English speakers. We follow the fundamental principles of olympic movement - openness, impartiality and transparency while conducting the Olympiads.

 

The tasks of the Olympiad are set according to the Group year’s expectations. However, most of the tasks will require some intellectual flexibility and ingenuity.    

 

Each completed task scores 10 points. However, we are more interested in your solutions rather than the answers. We take into account your reasonings and why you came up with such solutions.

The participants can get points for interesting, unconventional solution even if the task is unsolved.
