SOF IMO 2024-25 Registration/Application Process

The registration/application process for the SOF IMO exam is conducted offline for class 1 – class 12. Students cannot register individually for the SOF IMO Olympiad; they have to register through their respective schools as SOF only take applications via the registered schools.

Any school can register as a centre for the SOF IMO Level 1 without having to pay any registration fee. All registered schools receive a prospectus containing the registration forms. Schools that are not yet registered can request the prospectus by contacting the Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF) via email at info@sofworld.org or by calling 0124-4951200. It is essential for schools to fill in the registration forms accurately and completely. These forms should be returned to SOF by the specified due date. By following this process, schools can ensure their participation in the SOF IMO and provide their students with the opportunity to showcase their mathematical skills and compete at various levels.

The school’s coordinating teacher plays a crucial role in the registration process by filling out the School Registration Form (SRF) and Students’ Registration Sheet (SRS) according to the provided guidelines. Once completed, these forms are then submitted to the Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF) before the specified submission deadline. Upon receiving the SRF and SRS, SOF proceeds to generate roll numbers for all the students who have been registered. The roll numbers are generated based on the information provided in the Students’ Registration Sheet (SRS). This systematic approach ensures that each registered student receives a unique identification number, facilitating their participation in the SOF IMO examination.

IMO Registration Fee

Schools in India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, and Nepal are required to pay a registration fee of Rs 125 per student, including GST, for participating in the Science Olympiad Foundation’s International Mathematics Olympiad (SOF IMO). Along with this fee, schools may charge additional fees to cover expenses such as in-charge honorarium, teacher remuneration, and other related expenses. It is important to note that students with major physical disabilities and Indian students whose parents were martyred during defence operations are exempt from paying the registration fee.
