The Mathematics Olympiad Programme in India leading to participation in the
International Mathematics Olympiad is organized by the Homi Bhabha Centre for
Science Education (HBCSE) on behalf of the National Board of Higher Mathematics
(NBHM) of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE).

Stages
Stage 1 : Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO)
For the purpose of RMO, 23 regions over the whole country have been identified, and each assigned a Regional
Coordinator. Additonally, three groups (CBSE, NVS and KVS) also have a 'Regional Coordinator' each. The
RMO will be held on the second Sunday of November this year (November 9, 2008) between 1.00 pm and 4.00
pm for all the regions except for the Maharashtra and Goa Region. For Maharashtra and Goa region, the RMO
will be held on first Sunday of December this year (December 7, 2008) between 1.00 pm and 4.00 pm. All school
students of Class XI and Class XII are eligible to appear for RMO. The Regional Coordinators may on their
discretion admit exceptionally brilliant students of lower classes also. RMO is a 3-hour written test containing
about 6 to 7 problems. On the basis of RMO, a certain number from each region is selected to appear for the
Stage 2 examination. (The selected students from each region may include a maximum of 6 students of Class
XII.) Regional Co-ordinators may charge some nominal fees to meet the expenses for organising the contests.

Stage 2 : Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO)


The INMO will be held on Sunday, January 18, 2009 between 1.00 p.m. and 5.00 p.m. at centres in different
regions. Only students selected on the basis of RMO from different regions are eligible to appear for INMO.
INMO is a 4-hour written test. The question paper is set centrally and is common throughout the country. On the
basis of INMO, the top 30-35 students from all over the country become INMO awardees and receive a
Certificate of Merit. (A maximum 6 students of Class XII may be INMO awardees.)

Stage 3 : International Mathematical Olympiad Training Camp (IMOTC)


The INMO awardees are invited to a month long Training Camp held in May-June each year at the Homi Bhabha
Centre for Science Education (HBCSE), Mumbai. INMO awardees of the previous year who have satisfactorily
gone through postal tuition throughout the year are invited again to a second round of training (Senior Batch).
The senior batch participants who successfully complete the Camp receive a prize of Rs.5,000/- in the form of
books and cash. On the basis of a number of selection tests through the Camp, a team of the best six students is
selected from the combined pool of junior and senior batch participants.

Stage 4: Pre-departure Training Camp for IMO


The selected team of six students goes through another round of training and orientation for about 10 days prior
to the departure for IMO.

Stage 5: International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO)


The six-member team selected at the end of the Camp accompanied by a leader and a deputy leader represent the
country at the IMO, held in July each year in a different member country of IMO. IMO consists of two 4 and 1/2-
hour written tests held on two days. Travel to IMO venue and return takes about 2 weeks. India has been
participating in IMO since 1989. Students of the Indian team who receive gold, silver and bronze medals at the
IMO receive a cash prize of Rs.5000/-, Rs.4000/- and Rs.3000/- respectively during the following year at a
formal ceremony at the end of the Training Camp.

Ministry of Human Resource Developement (MHRD) finances international travel of the 8-member Indian
delegation, while NBHM (DAE) finances the entire in-country programme and other expenditure connected
with international participation.

All the six students of the Indian team automatically qualify for the Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana
(KVPY) Fellowship, provided they pursue careers in mathematics or basic sciences.
Students aiming to go through the Mathematical Olympiad Programme leading to international participation
(for the best 6) should note that RMO is the first essential step for the programme. To appear for RMO, students
should get in touch with the RMO Co-ordinator of their region well in advance, for enrolment and payment of
any fees, which is nominal. To know the RMO Co-ordinator of your region, please click List of RMO Co-
ordinators.

Syllabus
The syllabus for mathematics olympiad (regional, national and international) is pre-degree college
mathematics. The areas covered are arithmetic of integers, geometry, quadratic equations and expressions,
trigonometry, co-ordinate geometry, systems of linear equations, permutations and combinations,
factorisation of polynomials, inequalities, elementary combinatorics, probability theory and number
theory, finite series and complex numbers and elementary graph theory. The syllabus does not include
Calculus and Statistics. The major areas from which problems are given are number theory, geometry,
algebra and combinatorics. The syllabus is in a sense spread over Class IX to Class XII levels, but the
problems under each topic are of exceptionally high level in difficulty and sophistication. The difficulty
level increases from RMO to INMO to IMO.
