How can I access the final exam?
If the participant has successfully completed the pre-final round, it is possible to access the final exam starting from the 07. December 2020 on the final exam webpage by logging in with your profile credentials.
Can I skip questions or go back if I want to change my answer?
No. The participant must give the final answer to each question within the dedicated time window for that specific question.
What should I do in the case of technical difficulties during the exam?
First and foremost: the participant must inform his/her supervisor. After taking screenshots of the encountered issue, the participant should try to reload the exam page (and log in again if necessary). After the exam, if we detect any time irregularities the student will have the option to explain any technical issues.
What should I do with the approval code at the beginning of the final exam?
The approval code is used to verify that the student is currently being supervised by his/her teacher. The student has to pass this code to the teacher so that he/she can approve the student. After successful verification, the exam will automatically progress to the next page.
What are the time stamps that are shown to me after the exam?
If we have detected any time issues during the exam, the student is able to see for exactly which question(s) we encountered a mismatch. The student has then the possibility to explain reasons that caused them.
How many questions does the final round have?
The final round consists of a single online exam with 40 multiple-choice questions. The questions require knowledge about different areas of mathematics. Finalists have 60 seconds for each question! To every question, there are four possible answers given (only one is correct). A correct answer equals one point. The awards and prizes are given to the finalists with the most points in the final round.
Who can supervise the final exam?
The person supervising your final exam must be an active teacher (i.e. not retired) at some officially recognized school or university. He must be able to prove his employment at a school and his teaching duty.
How can my teacher register?
Your teacher has to register online: Teacher Registration Page
Can you refer me to some teachers that can supervise my final exam?
Unfortunately, we can not provide you with teachers that can take your final exam. Please contact the teachers of your school or teachers of other regional schools.
Does the teacher have to be from my school?
No.
Does the teacher have to be a mathematics/science teacher?
No.
There are multiple finalists in my school. Can we have the same teacher?
Absolutely yes. If there are multiple students that participate in the final round in your school, it is important that the same teacher takes the final exam for all students at the same time! Please contact your teacher and inform him/her about the other participants.
My teacher rejected as a supervisor. What should I do?
Please ask another teacher, who can prove to hold the exam as an independent authority. The rejected teacher can also register again with other documents (e.g. in case some information or documents were missing).
What help/tools are allowed for the final round?
None! It is only allowed to open the online exam website in a browser.
What if two participants have the same number of points in the final round?
In this case, the results of the pre-final round and of the qualification round will be used to determine the final winner based on the total points. If the tie remains, both participants will receive the same award and split the cash prize. However, this has never happened before.
When will the final winners be announced?
The results of the final round and IYMC 2020 will be announced on 14. December 2020.
I had technical issues. Can I do the exam again or continue later?
No. You have to make sure that there is a steady internet connection during the exam and that your browser is up-to-date. You are responsible for any recording or filming mistakes. It is not possible to pause, continue or re-take the exam once you have started.

What should the photo show that my teacher has to take?
The picture of the teacher should show the exam conditions/environment. That means the student taking the exam / in front of the device and the device screen.
I want to record my exam. Does a teacher need to register for me?
No. If you choose to record the exam, you do not need a teacher. Thus, no teacher needs to register or add you as a student.
Who can film my exam?
The person filming must not be a participant of IYMC. It should be a family or household member. You can also film the exam yourself without the help of another person.

Yes, it is allowed to use a camera stand or tripod to film the exam. In this case, please enter your name in the 'Full Name' field and 'NA' in the 'Relationship' field during the exam process.
How can I upload the video of my recorded exam?
After you are done with your exam, you will see a window 'Final Exam Video Upload' at the bottom of the participant login page. There you can upload a link to your video. (You have to upload the video to a cloud or storage site; for example Google Drive, Dropbox, and others).
What is the deadline for the video upload?
Please upload the link to the video as soon as you are done with the exam. The last possible day is 09. December 2020.
My camera/phone cannot film for 40 minutes. What should I do?

Does my teacher need a stamp on the teacher form (even during lockdown)?
If your teacher cannot get a stamp on the teacher form (which is required) due to the current lockdown, there are multiple possibilities. If he/she has already supervised exams during IYMC 2019 or our partner competition IAAC 2019/2020, your teacher can submit the 2020 form without a stamp and attach a form from previous editions which has a stamp. If not, your teacher can write 'Not Possible Due To Lockdown' in the stamp field. However, we will request the missing stamp later (in case you score very high results or we detect any other suspicious activities). Please note that it is not allowed for your teacher to supervise you online (e.g. Zoom or Skype).
What should the recorded video show?
The video has to clearly show (a) yourself in front of the computer/laptop/phone and (b) the exam content on the screen. For example, you can open the exam website on your desk and sit in front of it. Another person films you doing the exam from behind in a distance of 1-2 metre. The video shows you (from behind) doing the exam and the screen with you selecting the answers. Of course, it is also possible to film you from the side or any other angle (as long as you and the content on the screen are visible). Your face can be visible in the video, but this is not a requirement.
Must the video recording have sound?
Yes, the video must include the surrounding sound.
Can I skip questions and complete the exam under 40 minutes?
No, it is not possible to skip questions or to proceed to the next question before 60 seconds are over.
How does the final round take place?
Participants that have solved the pre-final round successfully are qualified to participate in the final round: an online multiple-choice exam for which students have 40 minutes time. The exam will take place in the form of an online exam in the school of each finalist, supervised by a teacher. All finalists have to select a teacher who agrees to supervise the final exam. the 40 minutes exam must be conducted by the teacher until 09. December 2020.
