The IMC is an annual event in which university students across various countries compete to solve mathematical problems. University College London hosted this year’s competition, which was held over two days, on 26 and 27 July 2020. During the competition, the students had to work under intense pressure to solve 4 challenging problems within a tight time limit. The problems were selected by an international committee, and the students’ solutions were assessed by Team Leaders and mathematics professors.
The SPMS team was led by Dr Fedor Duzhin, who has overseen the school’s participation in the IMC for many years. The Deputy Leader was Ms Camille Mau, an SPMS graduate who is currently pursuing her PhD.
