The Cambodian Mathematical Society (CMC), in co-operation with the Institute of Japanese Mathematics, is proud to announce the new Suken Test.

The? examination is being offered on September 30 at Khemarak University in Phnom Penh.

Three hundred candidates are allowed to enroll for the fourth annual international examination, which is given to test-takers in the English language.

You can register in from June first to August 30, with different prices that correspond to varying levels of difficulty spanning year-4 of primary school to the fourth-year of university.

The CMC was founded by Chan Ponin in order to glorify the progress Cambodia’s made in mathematic research and theory, serving both Cambodia’s needs in the discipline and also that of Asia’s – and one day, the world’s.

According to Chan Ponin, the CMC develops research projects, prepares seminars, collects and publishes landmark achievements and co-operates with both national and international institutions with similar goals.

Pon Chen, a member of the CMC, said: “The Suken Test is special for anyone who wants to measure his or her knowledge in mathematics at varying levels. Certificates are offered and taken directly from the Insitute of Japanese Mathematics,” he added. “The certificate is acknowledged internationally.”

Pon Chen said that CMC offers the Suken Test to strengthen the discipline of mathematics throughout all levels of Cambodian students’ ability and level of study. He hopes the Test will encourage them to participate in any competitions the Kingdom provides in mathematics.
