We thank all participants and schools who have registered for the Kangaroo Math Competition which was scheduled to take place on 26 March 2020.
Due to the current developments surrounding the COVID-19 situation, and the uncertainties facing us in the days ahead, we urge everyone to take utmost care of your health and safety, and to closely follow the guidelines issued by the authorities.
Because of this issue, there are some changes in Kangaroo Math Competition 2020, namely:

2020 has been an exceptional year, and this unfortunate situation is not only experienced by participants in Malaysia, but also the 6 million Kangaroo Math participants from all over the world.
Despite this less-than-ideal situation, let us continue to do the good work of promoting mathematics and problem-solving among the young people of Malaysia while keeping health and safety as our number one priority.
