For the first time ever, Bangladesh has bagged a gold medal in the Asian Pacific Mathematics Olympiad (Apmo). The result was published on Tuesday.

Md Maruf Hasan, student of Ananda Mohan College, Mymensingh, won the gold medal for Bangladesh in this year's competition. He won silver and bronze medals in 2019 and 2020, respectively. 

Besides, Nuzhat Ahmed of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College and Adnan Sadiq of Notre Dame College won a bronze each, while six members of the Bangladesh team were awarded special honours.

In this year's competition, a total of 344 students participated from 37 countries. With a total score of 96, Bangladesh ended up 21st with one gold and two bronze medals. 

The Bangladesh Mathematical Olympiad (BdMO) committee announced the local edition of the mathematical olympiad in March this year. It was held at the Monem Business District building in Karwan Bazar, Dhaka. 

Apmo is held annually. Each participating country has a representative in charge of organizing it locally. A central committee selects a paper with five questions to be solved in four hours, sends marking schemes and determines award winners.
