International Olympiads
There are several Mathematical Olympiads of International repute, where students participated from India. They include
 International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO),
 Asian Pacific Mathematics Olympiad (APMO),
 European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO),
 Sharygin Geometry Olympiad,
 Iranian Geometry Olympiad (IGO),
 Tournament of Towns.
For ease of reference, one may have a brief overview of participation of India in IMO, APMO, EGMO in recent times below, which relies on the information available at the following webpages, which are significantly more detailed.

Geoff Smith
is a British mathematician. He has been the leader of the UK IMO team during 2002–2010, 2013–2018, 2022. He has been awarded the IMO Golden Microphone thrice (during 2006, 2009, 2014).
He remarked the following in the foreword to the text Infinity by Hojoo Lee, Tom Lovering (he maintains a blog), and Cosmin Pohoata.
The nations which do consistently well at this competition (IMO) must have at least one (and probably at least two) of the following attributes:
 A large population.
 A significant proportion of its population in receipt of a good education.
 A wellorganized training infrastructure to support mathematics competitions.
 A culture which values intellectual achievement.
Alternatively, you need a cloning facility and a relaxed regulatory framework.
Here is an excerpt from his Advice for young mathematicians.
From time to time I am approached by students interested in advice about becoming more effective contestants in mathematics olympiads. Here it is.
Do lots and lots, and then more, past papers. Begin with national mathematical olympiads, starting with the less difficult papers. Now, I am not going to risk insulting any countries by saying that their national maths olympiads are easy. Work it out for yourself. Countries which have small populations, and no great tradition of success in maths competitions, will generally have easier questions. When you become very good at those, then move on to hard national maths olympiad problems and the less demanding international competitions.
I am often approached by students from developing countries. Sometimes students complain that there is no satisfactory educational or training regime in my country. Please check that this is true! The IMO contact person in your country may tell you otherwise. In the worst case, where there is no competent organization providing free (or nearly free) assistance to young mathematicians, then you will have to help yourself. Try to locate other young people in your country who are interested in mathematics, and work together. Fortunately there is a vast collection of free resources on the internet: over 25 thousand past problems from maths competitions are available at the extensive Art of Problem Solving site, and if you explore, you will find discussions of solutions. Don’t look up the solutions too quickly (be prepared to spend many hours thinking about each problem). If you want to start on some problems which are less demanding than a full national maths olympiad, here are plenty of British Maths Olympiad round 1 problems. The round 2 problems are more challenging.
