The Sun Life Financial Canadian Mathematical Olympiad Qualifying 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.
In 2014, the CMS invited 76 students to write the Repêchage. Of these, 22 participants wrote solution sets that earned them an invitation to the 2014 Sun Life Financial CMO to be written 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.
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. Other students may be invited to write the Repêchage at the discretion of the CMS Math Competitions Committee.
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:
2014: Questions, Solutions
2013: Questions, Solutions
2012: Questions, Solutions
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.
