THE KANGAROO HAS ARRIVED IN MALAYSIA!
Kangaroo Math Competition (KMC) is the world’s largest mathematics contest, with participation from more than 6 million students from 50+ countries annually. The Kangaroo, also known as Le Kangourou in French, was originated in France in the early 1980s, inspired by the success of a similar contest in Australia (hence, the contest is named after the famed Australian marsupial). The contest is organized by the Association Kangourou san Frontieres (AKSF), based in Paris. Malaysia joined AKSF as a member in 2012.
The KMC consists of one round of multiple choice question paper, which is given at the student’s own school. This arrangement allows the maximum number of students to participate. There are no selection rounds or qualifying exam, there is only one paper to be taken by the participants. All participants in the world will write the same test on the same day, called the Kangaroo Day.
Who can join KMC?
The KMC contest is open to all primary, secondary, and pre-university students. Participants will be divided into 6 categories based on their school year.
Why students should join KMC?
Malaysian students will have the opportunity to achieve certification and recognition from an internationally prominent educational body. Students are then able to include the KMC certificate in their school portfolio to strengthen their application for universities and scholarships.
When is the KMC?
Students from Malaysia will have the opportunity to participate in KMC, which was held for the third time in 2015. The KMC 2016 contest will take place on 24 March 2016. The KMC is scheduled on the third Thursday in March every year, except when it is on a Malaysian school holiday, in which case it will be organized one week later.
