The Unicus Mathematics Olympiad (UMO) is an international competitive exam held online as well as offline (pen/paper) for students in classes 1-11 (year 2020-21). Since various Olympiads are based on curriculum which doesn’t get complete on time, Unicus Olympiads provide a great platform to assess student’s practical application based on the concepts they have studied.
