Registration open – Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad (PRMO) 2018

Dear Parents & Students,

This is to inform you that registrations are open for Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad (PRMO) 2018. The Mathematical Olympiad Program in India, which leads to participation of Indian students in the International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) is organized by the Homi Bhabha Center for Science Education (HBCSE) on behalf on National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India. This program is one of the main initiatives taken by the NBHM. Its main purpose is to spot Mathematical Talent among pre-university students in the country. Students with an aptitude/interest for Maths specifically are strongly recommended to take up this test. 

The exam will be held on Sunday, August 19, 2018, between 10 AM to 1 PM at different centers all over India. In order to be eligible for the RMO, it is mandatory that students qualify through this centrally administered PRMO. No other independently administered examinations will be recognized.

The PRMO will be a machine-correctable 3-hour duration test of 30 questions – some 2 marks, some 3 marks, and the remaining 5 marks. Each answer is a 1-digit or 2-digit answer. Each question has an answer which is a number with one or two digits. Sample PRMO questions and Sample OMR sheet showing marked answers can be downloaded from here.

The Kendriya Vidyalaya and Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya schools will be exam centers. Certain other exam centers may be selected carefully and will be mentioned on the website.

A carbon copy of the answer sheet (OMR) will be given to the student after the exam; students can check their answers as against the answers which will be uploaded on the MTA website.

  1. NOTE: The OMR sheet MUST be retained by the individual student till the conclusion of the Mathematical Olympiad Programme for 2018-19. This will be used for verification purposes for all steps of the Mathematical Olympiad.

From each region, the top (up to) 300 students from Classes 8,9,10,11 and the top (up to) 60 students from Class 12 will be eligible to write the Regional Mathematics Olympiad exam.
