Six out of 10 Vietnamese students who attended an annual mathematics contest for Asia-Pacific primary schools in Singapore have cracked the top 15.
This is the best performance of a Vietnamese team at the Asia-Pacific Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (APMOPS) since 2009.
The students placed from number 2 to 13 at the contest, which was held on Saturday at Hwa Chong Institution, news website VnExpress reported on Monday.
This year 264 students of 11-12 years old around the region competed for medals which were designated for the top 40 participants.
Some contestants were from Hong Kong and Shanghai, which have a good track record at international mathematical contests.
All the Vietnamese competitors were sixth-graders at Hanoi-Amsterdam School who won a national round in April with the participation of nearly 500 students.
APMOPS was first organized in 1990.
