The National Olympiad Programme of 2020-21 in mathematics has been affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  The information on this page relates to the usual procedure of the mathematical olympiads, and may not hold for the programme in 2020-21 due to the special circumstances prevailing in the country. Please check here for procedures to be adopted for the 2020-21 cycle.

Eligibility: Candidates born on or after August 1, 2000 and studying in Class 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 are eligible to write PRMO 2019. Further, the candidates must be Indian citizens. Provisionally, students with OCI cards are eligible to write the PRMO, subject to conditions as explained below:

As per the orders of the Madras High Court, students with OCI status will not be eligible for selection to the Indian team in the International Mathematical Olympiad. However, such students are provisionally eligible for selection at ALL prior stages, up to and including the IMOTC provided they fulfill all other criteria. This policy is subject to revision without prior notice depending on any further orders issued by the courts, or by a competent Government authority.

It is each student’s responsibility to determine if she/he satisfies the eligibility norms for each stage of the Mathematical Olympiads. If, at any stage, it is found that the student does not meet the eligibility norms, she/he may face immediate disqualification from the programme.
