Nordic Mathematical Contest
Regulations for the Nordic Mathematical Contest
- The competition is open to all Nordic countries,
i.e. Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
- One of the countries will be responsible for the competition and
is hereafter called the host country. Each
participating country appoints a national committee which is

should be enrolled in an upper school (gymnasium) at the time of
the competition. There is no age limit.
- The competition consists of four problems to be solved
individually during four hours.
- The problems can be selected from any branch of mathematics
suitable for upper school students. This may mean olympiad type
problems, that is problems on number theory, geometry, algebra,
combinatorics and inequalities, as well as problems from
calculus and elementary probability theory.
- Each participating country, including the host country,
proposes three to five problems to the host country. The host
country selects the competition problems from the proposed
problems and distributes the problems in time to the
participating countries so that they can be translated into the
languages of the competitors.
- Within each country, the competition should be held at the same
time. The time is fixed by the national committee.
- The national committee performs the preliminary grading of the
