Can we offer the competition at a private center?
With a very few, rare exceptions, we have decided not to
involve private organizations with the competition due to potential conflicts
of interest and business advantages which may arise.
Can we offer the competition at a school?
Although the competition is usually offered through
universities, there is no restriction for schools to offer Math Kangaroo provided
that they are willing to hold the competition on Sunday and there is no other
regional centre in close proximity which could accommodate their students.
Changing school grade
Contestants' school grade can only be changed if the requested school grade
is higher than the actual school grade in mathematics of the student.
Sometimes, students' grade is higher than it should be because
of a mistake or other reason. In such cases, we verify the grade of the
students by contacting their schools before changing school grades to lower.
Can a contestant write the competition on a different day?
Grade 1 participation
Problems are selected according to the cognitive abilities of
an average grade 1 student; however, we acknowledge that each child is
different. In addition, there is a certain degree of challenge and stress
generally associated with competitions. We will try to accommodate our youngest
participants as much as possible during the competition. Our volunteer
supervisors will be around to support them and provide guidance, as much as the
rules of the contest allow. We may not be able, however, to accommodate every
student needs. In particular, there will be no reading aloud of the questions
to the students. They are expected to have acquired an ability to read a simple
text of 1-2 sentences on their own at the time of the competition.
We suggest that parents take these notes into consideration
before registering a grade 1 participant. We leave up to their judgement to
decide whether their child is ready to cope with the challenge and still enjoy
