Sun Life Financial CMO Qualifying Repêchage Competition

The Repêchage is sponsored by
Sun Life Financial

The Sun Life Financial Canadian Mathematical Olympiad Qualifying Repêchage (CMOQR or just Repêchage) is an invitation-only contest that serves as a qualifier for the Sun Life Financial Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO).

Students participating in the Repêchage receive a set of problems whose solutions must be submitted within a week of receipt. Students who do well on the Repêchage are then invited to write the CMO.

 

2015 Competition

In 2015, the CMS invited 87 students to write the Repêchage. Of these, 21 participants wrote solution sets that earned them an invitation to the 2015 Sun Life Financial CMO in April.

All students invited to write the Repêchage are given free copies of A Taste of Mathematics (ATOM) - one of the CMS's many publications for problem-solving students.

Want a challenge? Try this year's problem set yourself! Official solutions are also available.

Invitation

Students are invited to write the Repêchage based primarily on the results of the Sun Life Financial Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge (COMC). Normally the top 50 students (approx.) from the COMC receive a direct invitation to write the CMO. The next 50-75 students normally receive an invitation to the Repêchage.

Eligibility

Students invited to write the Repêchage must complete a declaration that they meet the eligibility requirements to write the CMO. The eligibility requirements to write the CMO are as follows:

Preparing for the Repêchage

In addition to the past Repêchage test papers, students are encouraged to use past COMC and CMO papers to help prepare for the Repêchage. The CMS also has many problem-solving resources available for competitors.
