Enrollment of Mathematical Olympiad

The Mathematical Olympiad programme follows a four-stage selection procedure beginning with PRMO.

Before enrolling for PRMO, check that you satisfy the eligibility criteria.

Enrollment for PRMO:

  1. The PRMO will be a machine-correctable test of 30 questions. 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 PRMO exam will be organized this year by IAPT (the Indian Association of Physics Teachers), the same association that also organizes the National Standards Examination, which is the first step for participation in the International Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy and Junior Science olympiads. The website for PRMO is available at http://www.iapt.org.in/

  3. A link to a portal is available at the IAPT webpage where schools can register as centres; this portal will be open from May 20 to June 20, 2017.
