Following the positive response to last year’s SMO review sessions on YouTube (total 14k views and counting!), I’ll be conducting review sessions again for this year’s SMO Round 1. The schedule and links are as follows:
SMO Junior: 1 Jun 3:00pm (https://youtu.be/EP2dXpdD5Nw)
SMO Senior: 2 Jun 2:30pm (https://youtu.be/Tw3CLCaLnY8)
SMO Open: 2 Jun 6:30pm (https://youtu.be/42LFCwMgTwQ)
New this time, I have also written a set of SMO mock papers, which you can find at the links below. It’ll be especially useful if you’ve run out of ‘fresh’ SMO papers to do! Their difficulty should be comparable to the more challenging years of the SMO.
Video solutions to all papers are being gradually released on my YouTube channel.
Hope you will find it helpful, and all the best for the SMO!

Below are the university (undergraduate and postgraduate) destinations of Singapore IOI team members in the last decade. Top 3 uni choices are NUS, MIT and CMU. Note that most of the guys have had to serve 2 years of compulsory National Service (NS) after their High School, before joining the University. Those guys and girls with no NS obligation are marked with #.

The European Summer Program on Rationality (ESPR) is an immersive workshop for mathematically talented students with a desire to understand themselves and the world.
Where: Oxford, UK.
When: ESPR has two runs this year:
17th - 27th August
18th - 28th August
Who: Applicants between 16-19 years old.
Application is now open. Apply here by May 29th.
The curriculum covers a wide range of topics, from game theory, cryptography, and mathematical logic, to AI safety, styles of communication, and cognitive science. The goal of the program is to help students hone rigorous, quantitative skills as they acquire a toolbox of useful concepts and practical techniques applicable in all walks of life.
ESPR’s tuition, room, and board are free for all admitted students. Travel scholarships are also available.
It is a good programme! Lim Li went in 2017, from 18 August to 1 September. Some photos can be found in this post.

This is posted on behalf of an RI Graduate:
I am offering tuition to interested students. Here's a little bit about myself:
I graduated from Raffles Institution (JC). For A levels, I obtained 90RP and straight As in all H2 subjects taken (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Economics), as well as a Distinction for H3 Mathematics. I have obtained numerous Gold medals at the national Olympiads for Maths, Physics and Informatics, as well as a Silver medal at the International Physics Olympiad. I also have an offer from Trinity College, Cambridge University to read Computer Science.
I am able to give tuition to secondary and JC students during weekends for the following subjects:
- Maths (‘O’ and ‘A’ levels/Olympiad)
- Physics (‘O’ and ‘A’ levels/Olympiad)
- Chemistry (‘O’ and ‘A’ levels)
- Informatics (Olympiad)
