A Journey to the IMO
This document is 8 pages long and contains a lot of math. Hence I will only present brief descriptions here, and instead redirect you to this link for the full document:
The purpose of this document.
In July 2021, I represented Nepal at the prestigious International Math Olympiad (IMO). I was awarded the Honorable Mention.
However, as I reflect upon my journey, I realise that there were many other talented and diligent individuals who should’ve made it, but got left out. I think it was due to the absence of good guidance on the internet. To fill this vacuum, I’ve created a document collating my experience and learnings. I hope it proves useful.
The contents of this document:
This document has 3 sections. In section 1, I detail my journey through the various selection stages uptil the IMO. Then in section 2, I take you through an IMO problem, how I thought about it and how my thinking morphed into a good solution. Finally, in section 3, I discuss different preparation strategies, what worked for me, and what didn’t.
