This section is for those who have almost no idea about what do they need, who barely did anything mathematical but mathematics at schools but who are sure that they might need good mathematical skills.

Recently finished primary school

Please have a look at "Maths for 11-16" from the courses-page. We recommend you go through school-maths courses SM-0, SM-1, ... one by one and also try doing extra-maths courses EM-0 and EM-1.

If you like extra-maths courses, you might want to continue doing them and maybe start taking part in olympiads.

1-2 years of studying in middle-school

Please have a look at "Maths for 11-16" from courses-page. If you never done anything but school-maths we recommend you do SM-1: "Logic" and EM-1: "Extra-maths-try-out". Then you can jump to junior-school-maths courses and maybe start doing extra-maths courses as well.

If you already have experience with extra-curriculum maths, consider EM-2 or EM-3.

If you already have experience with extra-curriculum maths, consider EM-2 or EM-3.

3-4 years of studying in middle school

Please have a look at "Maths for 11-16" from courses-page. Some of the courses from intermediate/senior school-mathematics will definitely be relevant (pick the earliest one you are not confident with). As for extra-maths: you might want to try EM-2 if you have no experience with extra-curriculum stuff whatsoever; or EM-3/EM-4 if you have some experience (check the topics of EM courses then).

High-school

We haven't yet launched High-school maths courses. Though you can still have a look at "maths for 11-16", especially at senior school-maths courses — there might be something interesting for you. Also if you barely have any experience with olympiad-style maths we recommend you do EM-3: "Intermediate-extra-maths-try-out". If you do have experience, then doing EM-4, EM-5, ... one by one may do (check the topics of those courses).

This section is for those who are interested in getting good results in one/several of the international olympiads listed below.

International Mathematical olympiad (IMO)

This is one of the hardest and most prestigious maths olympiads for high-school students. More information here. First of all, check if you are ok with topics from EM-4, EM-5, EM-6 from extra-maths from "Maths for 11-16" course and also check if you know everything from intermediate school-maths. If you are ok, then check the topics of EM-7, EM-8, EM-8+3/7 and EM-9, one of the courses might do. If all of that is easy, you should already count on easily getting at least a bronze medal. So then you may consider doing EM-9+3/7 or wait until we launch High-school maths courses (fill out this tiny form so that we can contact you) — some of them will be specifically for preparation for IMO/team-selection tests.

Note: an important aspect of winning a competition is the hard work of the student. I.e do not expect to get any awesome results if you do not work at home trying to get a gold certificate.

Kvanta olympiad

This is a hard olympiad for students around 11-15 year old. More information here. There are three leagues: Junior, Intermediate, Senior. To prepare for the first one it is good to do all the junior-level courses from "maths for 11-16". Similarly, for the second one — all the intermediate-level courses from "maths for 11-16". As for the senior-league, almost nothing else is required, only EM-7 would be helpful to do. The olympiad is hard not because of the amount of theory required to do it, but because the ideas for the solutions are non-obvious.

This section is for those who want to know which of our courses help with preparing for one of the popular international maths exams listed below. Please note that we do not specifically prepare for any of them, we do much more. E.g we also want students to understand what is it they are doing...

IGCSE in mathematics

This exam is the most popular high-school qualification international maths exam and is meant to make sure that students have some grasp of fundamentals in mathematics. While the specific details vary slightly between example boards, but we cover almost all content from every exam board. From Kvanta's "maths for 11-16" curriculum: it is enough to do school-maths courses SM-0 to SM-11 (you can actually miss SM-6 if you want) to pass IGCSE with flying colours.

A-levels, "single-maths"

This is an internationally recognized qualification. We have not yet launched high-school maths courses (fill out this tiny form so that we can contact you when we do) so we cannot fully prepare you for them. However, being confident with all the school maths from "maths for 11-16" is already a very good start, you will actually be able to get an A in single-maths if you are good with all of the school-maths courses.

A-levels, "futher-maths"

As for "further-maths" A-levels please wait until High-school courses are launched (fill out this tiny form so that we can contact you when we do). That is where we will do much more of integration and differentiation and that is the biggest difference between further and single-maths. So things written in A-levels "single-maths" still apply.

We are not yet launching programming courses. However, there are some courses from "maths for 11-16" that help becoming a great programmer.

First of all, you must know the content from junior-level school-maths courses before starting programming. Second, those who want to be great programmers should take courses EM-0, EM-1, EM-2 and EM-4 from extra-maths. Especially the last one as it even has the name: "Extra-maths helps to become a great programmer. And not only...".

However we do not yet have courses for advanced people. If you are interested in such please fill out this tiny form.

Junior mathematical challenge

This is a multiple-choice olympiad with many questions and not much time (which is the main difficulty of this challenge). Problems are easy and their main goal is to test school-knowledge. Which school knowledge? Some of "maths for 11-16" school maths course, more precisely: SM-0 to SM-4.

There will be a few problems of olympiad-style so doing a few of extra-maths courses (like EM-1 at least) will be helpful.

British Mathematical Olympiad, round 1 (BMO-1)

BMO-1 is designed to be accessible to many students throughout the country, hence the amount of knowledge required tends to be fairly minimal. To get to BMO-1 you need to do well in the Senior Mathematical Challenge", so first check that section. As for BMO-1: the emphasis is placed on being creative with the relatively restricted set of theorems rather than knowing lots of things. Thus please have a look at "maths for 11-16" from courses page, in particular on extra-maths: we recommend doing EM-0 to EM-3 for practice with coming up with constructions, and EM-4 plus a bit of EM-5 for any background knowledge gaps.

British Mathematical olympiad, round 2 (BMO-2)

BMO-2 is for those who score well in BMO-1, so the knowledge of everything mentioned for BMO-1 is taken as given, as well as a couple of more advanced topics. To get a good result at BMO-2 we recommend you check the "maths for 11-16" from the courses page and do all the extra-maths courses up to EM-7. The level of difficulty of BMO-2 is around EM-7. But if you do EM-8 and maybe further courses as well, it will make you much stronger. Of course the initial courses (EM-0, 1, 2) might already be too easy for you.

Maths olympiads

"Russian mathematics" is world-famous as well as Russian maths olympiads. And while creating our curriculum we took a lot from what is being taught in best camps/clubs in Moscow/Saint-Petersburg, especially when it comes to combinatorics.

Here we collected a few most famous and hard olympiads from Russia because many people all over the world check them out. Just in case, note that the school there is 11 years long.

Euler's Mathematical Olympiad

This is a Russian-national maths olympiad for 8-grade students. This olympiad is pretty hard. To have good chances of winning it, you need to be confident with all junior and intermediate school and extra-maths from "maths for 11-16" course.

Russian national maths olympiad for grade 9

This is the infamous mathematical olympiad that has three levels: grade 9, grade 10 and grade 11. Here we will talk about the first one.

For grade 9: it is enough to do most of the stuff from "maths for 11-16" course. I.e if you want to have good chances of winning that olympiad you ought to know the content from SM-0, ..., SM-11, SM-11+3/7 from school-maths and have covered all the extra-maths courses (course with "+3/7" in the number are not necessary. Only EM-8+3/7 is recommended).

Russian national maths olympiad for grade 10

This is the infamous mathematical olympiad that has three levels: grade 9, grade 10 and grade 11. Here we will talk about the second one.

First of all, everything written for Russian national olympiad grade 9 applies here as well. In addition you need to cover SM-12, SM-12+3/7 and SM-13 from school-maths (still from "maths for 11-16"). Unfortunately the rest of the important things will be in High-school maths that we have not yet launched. But doing what we have already listed + a lot of practise and solving past papers will make you good enough for being a prizewinner at this olympiad.

Maths olympiads

This section is for those who want to know which of our courses help with preparing for one of the popular Singaporian maths exams listed below. Please note that we do specifically prepare for any of them, we do much more. E.g we also want students to understand what is it they are doing...

GCSE in "mathematics" (Singaporean version)

This is a Singaporean version of one of the most popular High-school qualification maths exams, its simple version. This is an exam for 16 year olds.

To get a good result at this exam it is enough to do cover some of the courses from "mathematics for 11-16", more precisely doing SM-0 to SM-11 plus SM-12+3/7 will be good enough.

GCSE in "additional mathematics" (Singaporean version)

This is a Singaporean version of one of the most popular High-school qualification maths exams, its harder version. But it is still quite easy to pass it with a good result if you prepare enough. This is an exam for 16 year olds.

To get a good result at this exam it is enough to do cover most of the courses from "mathematics for 11-16", more precisely doing all of the school-maths courses but SM-11+3/7 and SM-13+3/7.

A-levels (Singaporean version)

This is a Singaporean version of one of the most popular final exam. It is similar to the UK version (probably the most common one), but harder. Unfortunately we have not yet launched high-school maths courses, so we cannot fully prepare for this exam. But doing all of the school-maths from "maths for 11-16" course is already a very good start.

This section is for those who are interested in getting good results in one/several of the Singaporian olympiads listed below.

Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (Junior Section)

The first round of this olympiad is open to everyone who is 13-14 y.o. Top 10% of the first round go to the 2nd round and then about 25 of the best students are selected to "senior training team".

How can Kvanta help? Some of the courses from "maths for 11-16" should be enough. More precisely: to be fully prepared for round 2 and have good chances of doing very well you need to cover EM-0 to EM-4 from extra-maths and cover SM-0 to SM-3, SM-4, SM-6, and SM-9. As for round 1, the prerequisites are similar but the problems are much easier and the extra-maths courses mentioned are already doing much harder things. So we would simply recommend the same courses as mentioned above.

Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (Open Section)

The first round of this olympiad is open for any pupil at all. Selected students of the first round go to the 2nd round and then some of the best ones form a "national training team" from which 6 people will be later selected for IMO-team.

How can Kvanta help? Well, to have good chances of getting to the national training team you need to wait for some high-school maths courses that we are going to launch later. But doing all of the extra-maths and school-maths courses from "maths for 11-16" would be a very good start. Similar with round 1, but you need more high school maths (like calculus) to get a perfect score.

Interview with one of Kvanta teachers

We hope that the information above will help but obviously we do not know the level and plans of the student exactly. Everyone is unique and the perfect study-plan might be very unique as well.

Thus we are offering any student who finished primary school and is interested in maths a possibility to have an interview to one of our teachers. The teacher who will do the interview currently studies at the university of Cambridge and knows the course structure very well. The aim of the interview is to access students level and get back with a report and a suggestion for what we think it will be best for the student.

As the interviewers are quite busy the interview is not cheap and costs 29 US dollars. It will last from 45 till 90 minutes and will consist of mathematical questions and questions about students plans (e.g going into IT/physics later on. Maths is necessary for those as well!).
