And SUSTC contestants get the award-winning rate of 63%.

CMC, hosted by the Chinese Mathematical Society, is the highest-level competition in fundamental discipline of mathematics for the college students. First held in 2009, CMC is an annual event designed to stimulate the college students’ interest in mathematics, push forward reform and building of mathematics courses in institutions of higher learning, improve teaching level of college mathematics courses, develop the college students’ ability to analyze and solve problems, identify the innovative talents in mathematics and provide a stage for the college students to show up their fundamental knowledge and thinking ability.
