# Revised Schedule of Vedic Math activities in the Philippines

Last Sept 11, 2021, during the 1^{st} International Vedic Math Olympiad, of the 474 participants from 9 countries, the Philippines won 35 Gold, 70 Silver and 107 Bronze awards which accounts for more than 75% of the total awards given.

To maintain our standing in the world Vedic Math community, MATH-Inic Philippines is scheduling numerous activities in preparation for the 2nd International Vedic Math Olympiad which is expected to be staged in Sept 2022.

We have also asked the Institute for the Advancement of Vedic Mathematics (IAVM) to schedule another round of accreditation assessments for their 5-level rating of VM practitioners after the 8th Online Vedic Math Conference on March 12 and 13, 2022.

Here are the scheduled activities:

March 12 and 13, 2022 – 8^{th} Online Vedic Math Conference

March 27, 2022 – IAVM Assessment – Foundation Level Novice

The IAVM 5-level assessment system is designed to gauge an individual’s knowledge of VM techniques. This is very helpful specially for teachers and mathletes participating in Vedic Math competitions. The 5 levels are:

I: Foundation Level -Novice

II: Foundation Level – Proficiency

III: Foundation Level – Distinction

IV: Intermediate Level

V: Advanced Level

For Local VM contests, aside from the Certified Teachers Of Vedic Mathematics by the Vedic Math Academy(UK), only those who have attained III: Foundation Level -Distinction will be accredited as coach.
