Primary Math Olympiad Enrichment Program

Primary Level (Primary 3 - 6)

Math Olympiad competitions provide a platform for candidates with exceptional problem-solving skills to demonstrate their abilities in a non-academic yet competitive setup.

Every year, several thousand students in Singapore participate in such competitions at primary, secondary, and junior college levels. For some candidates, it is an opportunity to express their analytical skills, while for others, it is an avenue to improve their profiles and increase their chances of securing admission at a top secondary school/junior college/university.

With a deep expertise in mathematic training across all age groups, Prep Zone Academy is proud to offer our latest program – Primary Math Olympiad Enrichment Program – for aspiring students who aim to compete in Primary-level Math Olympiads.

About The Math Olympiads Enrichment Program (MOEP)


The Math Olympiads Enrichment Program (MOEP) is a series of stand-alone enrichment classes that aims to help aspiring math olympians to train for various Olympiads happening year-round in Singapore.

The program features small group size (5-10 students), each session lasts for 2 hours and will focus on advanced Olympiad topics.

Why Take Part in Math Olympiads?


With Direct School Admission (DSA) increasing in Singapore, candidates are going the extra mile to enhance their profiles through extra-curricular activities. Since most of the candidates participate in sports, student council, and/or performing arts, admissions directors start looking for unique activities that set the candidate apart from the others, with Olympiad a prime choice.

Currently in Singapore, premier institutions like ACS Independent, Raffles Institution, Hwa Chong Institution, and NUS High school host their own Math competitions, while several independent organizations conduct Math Olympiads like Singapore and Asian Schools Math Olympiad (SASMO), American Mathematics Contest, Australian Mathematics Competition, and Singapore Mathematics Olympiad, among others.
