The SEAMO English Math Olympiad is a test of global English Math competency for students from Primary to High School run by SEAMO International Organizing Committee based in Singapore. It is presided by the celebrated Math Olympiad author and Chief Examiner Mr Terry Chew B.Sc. The exam is held annually with the participation of more than 50,000 candidates from many countries around the world such as Singapore, the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Norway, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Thailand and many more.
The objective of the exam is to assess students' level of English Math competency from Grades 1 to 12, which enhances their critical thinking in mathematical problem-solving.
