Announcement of WA Junior Maths Olympiad, 2021

Confirmed Dates: Tuesday, 19 October and Saturday 23 October, 2021


Once again the WA Section of the Australian Mathematical Olympiads Committee is organising the WA Junior Mathematics Olympiad.

  • The goal of the competition is to identify the most gifted students in Mathematics. It is intended to be accessible to all bright Year 8 and 9 students and exceptional Year 7 students.
  • It is to be a WA School Competition with teams of students competing for their school.
  • There will be a charge of $8 per student.
  • Team nominations, the names of accompanying teachers and the registration fee should be sent to arrive before Thursday, 14 October, 2021.

Competition Details 2021

WAJO 2021 will consist of two question papers &endash; the individual paper and the team paper &endash; (as usual). Like last year the papers will take place over two days, but the arrangements for the team paper are more like those prior to 2020.

  • The Individual Paper will be sat online by students at their school on Tuesday 19 October starting between 2:30pm and 4pm. Each student has 100 minutes from when they start the paper.
  • The Team Paper will be sat on Saturday 23 October from 9am to 12 noon at two venues:
    UWA (for Perth students): in Arts Building centred around Alexander Lecture Theatre (Search for: Alex).
    and at a venue in Bunbury, yet to be confirmed.

Special conditions (as usual): Pens, pencils, a ruler and compass are permitted for use. No calculators. Brains only.

Prize Ceremony 2021

The prize ceremony will be held at UWA campus, approximately an hour after the conclusion of the team paper on Saturday 23 October.

How to enter

This year students may participate as individuals only on Tuesday 19 October, but students participating in the team paper must have participated in the individual paper on 19 October, and then must sit the team paper in the team they were registered in, prior to sitting the individual paper.
