Resonance PCCP Division has initiated a Support Program to help the aspirants of IMO 2018-19 in ensuring their success under the systematic approach of preparation given by the team of Resonance experts who prepare the content that we provide online to the students via this support program. It is based on the detailed analysis of the exam trends. This enables the students to sharpen their skills & focus on the key areas effectively in the limited time period. It also gives an exact idea of the paper thereby providing a practical approach. The benefits of joining this support program are :

Want us to inform you about any update regarding PRMO
Please share your details
The international Olympiad movement is aimed at bringing the most talented secondary and higher secondary students of the world together in a friendly competition of the highest level.
The Mathematical Olympiad Programme in India is organized by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) on behalf of the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India.
The principal aim of the mathematical olympiad and other math competitions is to stimulate love and enthusiasm for mathematics.
Number of Stages
Examination is conducted in 6 stages:
STAGE-1 : PRMO
Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad
STAGE-2 : RMO
Regional Mathematical Olympiad
STAGE-3 : INMO
Indian National Mathematical Olympiad
STAGE-4 : IMOTC
International Mathematical Olympiad Training Camp
STAGE-5 : PDT
Pre-departure Training Camp
STAGE-6 : IMO
International Mathematical Olympiad
Stage 1,Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad (PRMO): First step to Indian Mathematical Olympiad, jointly organized jointly by Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT: http://www.iapt.org.in) and the Mathematics Teachers Association (MTA: http://www.mtai.org.in)
The pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad (PRMO) is a three hour examination with 30 questions. The answer to each question is either a single digit number or a two digit number and will need to be marked on a machine readable OMR response sheet. The PRMO question paper will be available in English and Hindi versions. Students who require the Hindi version willneed to indicate their choice at the time of registration for PRMO.
On the basis of performance in PRMO, up to 300 students from Classes 8,9,10,11 and up to 60 students from class 12 will be selected to participate in RMO from each of the regions other than KV and JNV.
If in any region the enrolment for PRMO 2018 is less than 300, then up to a maximum of 50 students will be selected to write RMO 2018 from that region. Among those selected to write RMO 2018 from that region up to 1/6th can be from class 12.
For KV and JNV, up to 5 per cent top performers from Classes 8,9,10,11 and up to 1 per cent from Class 12 will be selected to participate in RMO.
Exam Details : The PRMO will be held on Sunday, August 19, 2018 between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm.
Eligibility : Candidates born on or after August 1, 1999 and are studying in Class8, 9, 10, 11 or 12, are eligible to write PRMO 2018.
Stage 2, Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO), organized by Regional Co-ordinators
The RMO is a three hour written test with six problems.
On the basis of the performance in RMO, up to 30 students from Classes 8,9,10,11 and up to 6 students from Class 12 from each region are selected for Stage 3 (INMO).
To break ties for the closing ranks, the PRMO score shall be applied by the regional coordinator. In case ties cannot be broken by PRMO scores also, the final list will include all candidates in the tied position.
Exam Details :The RMO will be held in all the regions on Sunday, 7th October 2018 between 1.00 p.m. and 4.00 p.m. The results of RMO for all the regions are to be declared centrally by HBCSE on or before 6th December, 2018.
Stage 3, Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO):
The INMO will be held on the third Sunday of January (January 20, 2019) from 12.00 noon to 4.00 p.m.
Only those students who are selected in RMO 2018 and those who have received an INMO certificate of merit in 2018 are eligible to appear for the INMO 2019. This contest is a four hour written test.
On the basis of the INMO, the top 30 students from Classes 8, 9,10, 11 and the top 6 students from Class 12 in merit from all over the country will be chosen as INMO awardees.
In addition to the INMO awardees, up to five girl students (outside the INMO awardees list) will be chosen based on the performance in INMO.
Exam Details : The INMO will be held on the third Sunday of January (January 20, 2019) from 12.00 noon to 4.00 p.m. The INMO results will be declared in the last week of February.
Stage 4, International Mathematical Olympiad Training Camp (IMOTC):
The INMO awardees and the girls selected from INMO for training are invited to a month long training camp in April-May each year at the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE), Mumbai. Besides, the INMO awardees from the previous years and the selected girl students of the previous years who are eligible for IMO-2019/EGMO-2020 and have gone through postal tuition throughout the year satisfactorily are invited to the training camp as senior students.
The junior students will receive the INMO certificate and a prize in the form of books. The senior students will receive a prize in the form of books and cash.
On the basis of a number of selection tests during the Camp, a team of the best six students is selected from the combined pool of junior and senior batch participants as the IMO 2019 Team.
Stage 5, Pre-Departure Training Camps:
The selected team of six students goes through another final round of training and orientation for 7 about ten days prior to departure for IMO. A Pre-departure camp will also be arranged for girl students selected for participation in EGMO 2019, at a suitable time.
Stage 6, International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO):
The six member team selected at the end of IMOTC accompanied by a leader, a deputy leader and observers represent the country at the IMO, held in July each year in a different member country of the IMO.
The IMO contest consists of two written tests held on two consecutive days. On each day of the contest the test consists of three problems and lasts for four and a half hours. India has been participating in the 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 at a formal ceremony at the end of the training camp during the following year.
IMO (International Mathematical Olympiad)
"The Mathematical Olympiad Programme in India, which leads to participation of Indian students in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is organized by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) on behalf of the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India. This programme is one of the major initiatives undertaken by the NBHM. Its main purpose is to spot mathematical talent among pre-university students in the country"..
