List of Invitees to Final Round (January 2016 )

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the First Round!  The list of invitees to the Final Round is available for download here: Invitees 2015-2016   The entries are organized alphabetically and not listed in order of score. Invitees are encouraged to complete the free registration process by providing their contact information. Do this by clicking the Final Round Registration tab at the top of this webpage.

Invitation by application. Any student who is not on the list of invitees to the Final Round but who would nevertheless like to attempt the Final Round is welcome to email a short essay to uncmathcontest@gmail.com  applying to participate. Such applicants should consider carefully the fact that most of the questions on the Final Round are as difficult as the hardest ones on the First Round, and that some are harder.  There is no need for a student to offer evidence that they might do well. All that is requested is a clear statement that they want to participate and that they understand the challenging nature of the Final Round. Applicants will be contacted by e-mail and given additional information regarding the registration process.
