Singapore and Asian Schools Math Olympiad (SASMO) is an international mathematics competition that is organised by Singapore International Math Contests Centre (SIMCC) and supported by non-profit foundations Singapore Scholastic Trust and SASMO Advisory Council (SAC).

SASMO is one of the largest Math Olympiads in the Asian region with over 20,000 participants from 19 countries in 2016. SASMO has now expanded the Olympiads by providing an international recognised competitive platform for students from Year 2 to 11 (or Standard 2 to Form 5).

SASMO for Primary and Secondary Schools is held annually in April and is available in three languages: Bahasa, English and Chinese.

Top scorers will receive Gold (8%), Silver (12%) and Bronze Awards (20%). All Gold, Silver and Bronze award winners in SASMO will be invited to join SIMOC (Singapore International Mathematics Olympiad Challenge) and AIMO (Asia International Mathematical Olympiad). Each participant will get a Certificate Of Participation.
