Casablanca – Morocco will be represented by six students at the 54th International Math Olympiad (IMO), to be held from 20 to 28 July in the city of Santa Marta in Colombia.
The Ministry of Education said in a statement that the selection of students was based on their display of strong and distinctive skills in mathematics.
Furthermore, the participating students were chosen among the best young Moroccan mathematicians via the organization of regional competitions in all regions of the kingdom.
After their selection, the best students were rigorously coached in a three-stage course.
According to the ministry, the six students who will represent Morocco in the 54th edition of the International Math Olympics are: Mohib Bilal, Masrour Ayman, Mohamed Amin Bouayad, Ali Barki, Majdouline Borji and Osama El Maataoui. These students are from schools affiliated with the regional academies of Fes-Boulemane, Tangier-Tetouan, Meknes-Tafilalet and Rabat-Salé-Zemmour-Zaer.
This participation reflects Morocco’s aspiration to ensure the continuity of its distinguished presence in the IOM after the positive results achieved by the Moroccan students who took part in previous editions, precisely the one held in Holland in 2011, and the one hosted by Argentina in 2012.
