Kangaroo Math Malaysia is an educational initiative that focuses on promoting mathematical problem-solving skills among students. It offers a variety of math competitions and enrichment programs designed to enhance students’ mathematical abilities and foster a love for mathematics.

If your school participated in the Kangaroo Math Competition in 2023 and you are still teaching at the same school, you do NOT need to create a new ContestHub account. You can use your existing account to register for the upcoming competition by login using the same username and password. Kindly update your profile account.

Each school is required to appoint at least one Teacher-In-Charge (TIC) responsible for handling registration, payment, and overseeing the competition day. The designated teacher must have a ContestHub account to ensure our secretary is informed that you are the TIC representing your school. To be officially recognized as the TIC, please reach out to our customer support team using the phone number provided in FAQs 18.

For Kangaroo Math, our system allows up to three teachers in charge to be assigned. In cases where a school has more than three teachers, please feel free to reach out to our support team for assistance.

To register your students, you must create a new account on ContestHub. If you register your students using a previous ContestHub account, we will assume that the students are from your previous school, and we will also assume that you are still a teacher there.

We do not have any minimum or maximum requirements for registration, as we warmly welcome all schools to participate in our competition.
