  About RMO

First step towards the Olympiad

The Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO), preceded by the Pre-RMO test (at times), is the first step towards representing India at the global platform for 'mathletes', the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

The RMO is a three-hour written test with six or seven problems. On the basis of the performance in RMO, a certain number of students from each region is selected for the Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO), second step towards the International Olympiad.

Prepare for the Mathematical Olympiad

There is no prescribed syllabus for the Mathematical Olympiads (RMO, INMO and IMO). Broadly speaking, students appearing at RMO must be well versed with mathematics taught upto Class X. The major areas are algebra, combinatorics, geometry and number theory. The syllabus does not include calculus and statistics.

The book -- An Excursion in Mathematics -- provides a good idea of the background needed for the Olympiads. The students should also check the old papers.
