British Mathematical Olympiad

Historical information wanted

We are currently lacking various past papers, IMO reports and related historical information (from before the establishment of BMOC) that we would like to complete the collections present on or linked to from this site. If you can help provide any such documents and information, please contact the BMOS webmaster, Joseph Myers (

If sending scanned documents, it seems most useful to send them as 600dpi grayscale scans, one per email to keep down the size of messages.

In general, for past papers the aim is to put up scans of the original documents, but failing that the problem statements are useful. The problem statements for all the BMO (now Round 1) papers are in Tony Gardiner’s book but we would like to extend the set of scans of original papers as well.
