part of Pre-RMO 2015 West Bengal application.
Indian students who are born on or after August 1, 1996 and, in addition, are in
Class IX, X, XI in a school in West Bengal are eligible to appear for the Pre-RMO 2015 West Bengal. Highly motivated and well
prepared students from Class
VIII may also take the Pre-RMO at the discretion of the Regional Coordinator. Based on their performance in Pre-RMO 2015 West
Bengal, a smaller number of students will be selected who will appear at RMO-2015 West Bengal.
Pre-RMO 2015 West Bengal will consist of only one test, of two-hour duration (1.30

Kolkata, Narendrapur, Malda, and Siliguri.
What is a
A Mathematical Olympiad is a problem solving competition open to all
"mathletes". The aim of the competition is to test innate problem
solving skills. The problems are restricted to those that require
minimal background and high ingenuity. Since one of the goals of
such olympiads is to identify talent at a young age, these olympiads
are usually restricted to students not yet admitted to any
Mathematical Olympiad (IMO)
International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is the World Championship
Mathematics Competition for High School students and is held annually
in a different country. The first IMO was held in 1959 in Romania, with
7 countries participating. It has gradually expanded to over 100
countries from 5 continents. IMO 2012 was held in Mar del Plata,
Argentina. IMO 2013 was held in Santa Marta, Colombia.
been participating in the IMO since 1989 and hosted it in Mumbai in
The 6-member Indian team for the IMO is selected through a three-step
procedure, organised by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education
(HBCSE) on behalf of the
National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) and funded by the
Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India.
Team India in IMO 2015 was felicitated at Homi Bhabha Centre for Science
Education, Mumbai, India on July 17, 2015. Persons who can be seen above are (from left)
Professor M.S. Raghunathan, members of Team India (Soumik Ghosh, Shourya Pandey, Pranjal
Warade, Jeet Mohapatra, Anant Mudgal, Sagnik Majumder), Professors S.G. Dani, V.M.
Sholapurkar and B.J. Venkatachala.
In IMO 2015, the Indian Team members and their
performance were as follows:
Soumik Ghosh (Honourable mention), Sagnik Majumder (Honourable mention), Jeet Mohapatra (Silver medal),
Anant Mudgal (Honourable mention), Shourya Pandey (Bronze medal), Pranjal Warade (Bronze medal).
In IMO 2014, the Indian Team members and their
performance were as follows:
Soumik Ghosh (Honourable mention), Jeet Mohapatra (Bronze medal),
Sagnik Saha (Silver medal), Supravat Sarkar (Honourable mention),
Anish Prasad Sevekari (Bronze medal), Chaitanya Tappu (Bronze medal).
In IMO 2013, the following members of Indian Team won medals: Sagnik Saha
(Silver), Shubham Sinha (Silver), Pranav
Nuti (Bronze), Anish Prasad Sevekari (Bronze), Pallav Goyal (Bronze).
Step -1: The Pre-RMO & RMO Training Camps (Pre-RMO TC and RMOTC)
Training camps have been organized in the past
with the purpose of exposing students to the kind of problems asked in mathematical olympiads.
If any academic institution wants to organize similar camps with
help from us, the organizers are encouraged to contact us by sending
email to email@example.com. We shall be glad to support such
activities by providing resource personnel. We shall consider supporting
such camps even when the number of participants
Step 0: The Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad (Pre-RMO)
Mathematical Olympiad is a state level examination, a stepping
stone towards the next state level examination, the Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO).
Based on the performance of participants in Pre-RMO 2015, a smaller number of students will
be selected who will write RMO-2015.
Pre-RMO 2015 will be held on November 22, 2015 (Sunday).
Step 1: The Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO)
Regional Mathematical Olympiad is the stage that follows
Pre-RMO. Candidates who qualify in the Pre-RMO are eligible to appear at RMO. The test of RMO typically consists of 6-7 problems
which an applicant is supposed to attempt. The next RMO (RMO-2015) will be held
on Sunday, December 6, 2015 during 1.00 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. The venue is likely to be the Kolkata centre of Indian Statistical

- Mukul Chaudhuri Memorial Prize
happy to announce the establishment of Mukul Chaudhuri Memorial Prize
for the best girl student from each Class VIII to XII, irrespective of
whether they are selected for INMO or not, provided they score a
minimum qualifying marks. The Prize, in form of books, is made possible
by a generous gift from Professor Soma Chaudhuri of Iowa State
University, in the memory of her mother.
Mukul Chaudhuri (1922 - 2007) was a talented student of
mathematics. She received the Kirtichand-Mackenzie Memorial Gold Medal
in 1938, awarded to the candidate with the highest marks in mathematics
in the Calcutta University Matriculation Exam. She completed her
Bachelor's degree in Mathematics in 1942. However her academic career
was cut short due to the political situation at the time (Partition of
India). She became a school teacher in mathematics and taught in a
variety of schools, both in India and abroad. Even though she couldn't
further her own academic career, she encouraged numerous girls to
pursue higher education in mathematics-related disciplines.
