  • See our fee table to estimate registration costs.
  • Download a PDF flyer listing contest date for 2016-2017 for schools in North and South America and schools outside North and South America.
  • A contest may never be written prior to the official contest date. We will do our best to arrange alternate dates for serious school-wide conflicts. Please contact us if you wish to arrange this.
  • Students working ahead a grade may choose to write the contest for the more advanced grade. However, a student may write at most one of the Pascal, Cayley and Fermat Contests, and at most one of the Fryer, Galois and Hypatia Contests, and at most one of the Canadian Intermediate Math Contest and Canadian Senior Mathematics Contest, and at most one of the Grade 7/8 Beaver Computing Challenge and the Grade 9/10 Beaver Computing Challenge.
  • Students planning to attend an Ontario university often write the Euclid contest.
