What we are
The Imperial College Mathematics Competition, or Imperial Mathematics Competition, is run by students at Imperial College London and aims to provide undergraduate and master's students with an opportunity to enjoy non-bookwork, competitive mathematics. We have close affiliations with the Mathematics Society (MathSoc) and the Department of Mathematics at Imperial.
Since 2017, we have seen undergraduate students from across the UK and beyond take part in the events, which include a two-round Individual Competition and a Team Competition.
We welcome undergraduate and master's students from all departments. Although some of the problems on our papers may require knowledge from the first year of an undergraduate degree in maths, our papers are designed to test the contestants’ abilities to solve problems creatively rather than their knowledge.
