Preparation Tips for IOM:

Math Olympiads are tough nuts to crack and they often become a question of worry for every student. You need to devote a lot of time and energy to understand and solve the problems. Here are some of the tips to help you out with the preparation.

##### Know the syllabus-

The very first thing you need to do is that you have to know the syllabus of IOM. Be very careful and do not overlook any key aspects of the syllabus. You can also navigate through each topic easily.

##### Gather the resources-

Get all the necessary books and resources for your preparation. The selected study material must cover all the content and relevant topics.

##### Make a study Plan-

You need to have a study plan which suits you in every way possible. Must ensure to have a day for your assessment in a week. Stick to this schedule until you are finished with your preparations.

##### Have a right ambience to study-

These Olympiads require ample of practice and time so you must ensure that you have an undisturbed concentration in studies. So, find a place that prevents you from any external disturbance.

##### Practice!

Know all the basic concepts of Mathematics and practice the Olympiad problems as much as possible. This will enhance your problem-solving skills and speed and will also build your confidence.
