Frequently Asked Questions

Who can apply to be a CC?

The IVMO’s are operated through Centre Coordinators (CCs) who take responsibility for participants who register with them or who are allocated to them. Any responsible adult can apply to become a CC.

Do I have to pay a fee to be a Centre Coordinator?

Yes. Registration fee is $20 or equivalent.

Do I need to register online?

If you are interested, please register here with your basic information. You will then receive an email from IAVM to guide you to the next steps and information about the payment options. Registration opens on 18th September and closes on 4th November.

Is there a fixed time for the Olympiad on November 30?

No. Centre Coordinators can decide the time based on their time zones and the availability of the participants.

What is the process for the Offline mode?

Before the event, CCs will receive the question papers in pdf format and will print off sufficient numbers. The papers must be sat under exam conditions with invigilation. Access to electronic devices is not allowed.

After the event CCs will be sent answer keys and will mark the papers and send the results for each level to IAVM on a pre-supplied form.

When and how will the results be declared?

Both off-line and on-line scores will be collated, and full results will be sent to CCs. At each level the top 30% of scores will be awarded gold, silver, and bronze certificates in the ratio 1 : 2 : 3. The next 30% will receive a certificate of merit and the remaining 40% receive a participation certificate. The top three internationally will also receive special certificates and will feature on our website.

Can I get a list of topics?

Yes, they are available here.

What support is available?

General communication can be made through our IVMO email address at ivmolympiad@gmail.com. CCs also receive
financial support between 32-40% of each entry fee to assist with logistics, printing, etc. On the day of the IVMO, 25th November 2023, support will be provided by email at ivmolympiad@gmail.com, to deal with any online technical issues.Our team of technicians will be on hand and can respond soon.

How long is the Olympiad?

What is the process for the Offline mode?

Participants’ names and email details must be sent to IAVM by 12th November 2023 on a pre-supplied form. CCs will also
need to notify IAVM of the time on 25th November at which they wish to hold the Olympiad. Links will then be sent to the
participants and links will activate at the chosen time. For invigilation, CCs should use Zoom, or such like, to observe
participants. After one hour of starting the Olympiad, it will automatically close. Answers will be marked automatically but scores will not be shown or announced at that time.

Who will send the certificates to the participants?

Due to IVMO being an international event copies of certificates in ppt format, together with result lists, will be sent to each CC. CC’s will enter the names of winners and complete the certificates. CC’s can decide to send an ecopy or hard copy of the certificates. IAVM will also send further certificates to the top three entries in each category.
