Mathlympics was inspired by the Olympics whereby athletes compete against each other, yet cultivate sportsmanship across the globe at the same time. 

The first Maths Olympiad in Singapore allowed the use of scientific calculators back in 2008 as it aims to reduce the assessment of mechanical calculation skills, and emphasises on measuring analytical thinking and problem-solving skills.

The competition is only open to students in Thailand
