 THE SECOND ROUND

Details & Regulations:

Students in the top 50 of the First Round are invited to write the Second Round. The top five Grade 10 students, if not already in the top 50, will also be invited. For each group of 20 students from the same school writing the First Round, the school may nominate an extra candidate for the Second Round. The final group does not have to be complete, provided that the school enters a team in the First Round. Thus, a school with seven participants in the First Round can nominate one extra student for the Second. The fee is $5 per nomination. This does not apply to candidates who qualify through the First Round.

The Second Round is a 3-hour paper, consisting of 5 problems requiring full solutions.

Unless otherwise announced, it is held from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon on the first Wednesday of February. Fellowships are awarded based on performances in the Second Round.
