Free Review Session For IAVM Assessments

Free review session for IAVM assessments

There will be a free review session from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM on September 16, 2023 for all those who registered for the Level II and Level III assessments to be conducted by the Institute for the Advancement of Vedic Mathematics (IAVM) in cooperation with MATH-Inic Philippines on September 24 and October 1 respectively.

These assessments are important for teachers and students to gauge their knowledge of the subject.

For teachers acting as coaches in those competitions, earning the level III certification is required to gain recognition as an accredited coach. Note that passing the level II test is a pre-requisite to taking the Level III exam.

For Vedic Math competitors, these exams will also serve as addition preparation for them before the 4th PNVMO on October 9, 2023 and the IVMO 2023 in November 25, 2023.

Those interested may still register here:

Registration fee is P300 per assessment.
