**Announcement regarding National Olympiad Programme ****in Mathematics for 2021-2022 (dt 16 Feb 2022)**

In view of some recent developments regarding school examinations and board examinations, certain changes in the Olympiad programme in the 2021-2022 cycle have become necessary. It appears that a large number of students will be engaged with their Class 10 and Class 12 board examinations during the period of April to June 2022, which is the usual time for the final stage of the national Olympiad programme. The selection process for the Indian team must be concluded with adequate time available before the international Olympiad to enable smooth completion of registration and visa formalities. Therefore, it would not be possible to conduct any selection tests beyond the Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Mathematics (IOQM) examination for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) 2022 scheduled in July.

The following decisions are announced for the Olympiad cycle of 2021-2022. These supersede previous announcements made in this regard.

- The dates of the Indian Olympiad Qualifier (IOQ) examinations are revised as under:

- Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Mathematics (IOQM): 6 March 2022 (Sunday), 9:00 – 13:00 hrs
- Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Junior Science (IOQJS): 6 March 2022 (Sunday), 14:30 – 18:00 hrs
- Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Physics (IOQP): 13 March 2022 (Sunday), 9:00 – 12:30 hrs
- Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Biology (IOQB): 13 March 2022 (Sunday), 14:30 – 18:00 hrs
- Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Astronomy (IOQA): 20 March 2022 (Sunday), 9:00 – 12:30 hrs
- Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Chemistry (IOQC): 20 March 2022 (Sunday), 14:30 – 18:00 hrs

Please note that this schedule is tentative, and is subject to change at short notice, depending on the prevailing situation in the country.

- Further selection stages beyond IOQM, namely the International Mathematical Olympiad Training Camp (IMOTC), stands cancelled. Selection for the Indian team for IMO 2022 will be based on the performance in IOQM Part B.

Specifically,

- Criteria for evaluation of IOQM Part B answer scripts on the basis of performance in IOQM Part A remain unchanged from as announced before (criteria given below).
- 6 students at the top of the merit list of IOQM Part B will be selected for the Indian team to the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) 2022.
- In case there is a tie of IOQM Part B scores among more students than the number of available remaining seats in the Indian team, the following two criteria will be used to break the tie, in order: (i) marks obtained in IOQM Part A, (ii) number of answers in IOQM Part B receiving full credit. In case these fail to break the tie, a suitable tie-breaking criterion will be applied by HBCSE.
- The students who would have qualified for the IMOTC as per previously announced criteria will be awarded INMO Awardee Certificate by NBHM and HBCSE. If conditions permit, they may be invited to participate in an online Orientation Camp (without any selection tests) at a suitable time,
**purely for academic benefit.** - In case a student is eligible for more than one international Olympiad (including at least one Science subject) according to the criteria above, she/he will be selected only for the subject that is highest in the preference indicated by her/him during IOQ registration. The vacant seat in other subject(s) will be offered to the next student in the merit list.

**Selection scheme to select students for IMOTC 2022**

The selection of students for IMOTC 2022 will be based on a single examination called the Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Mathematics (IOQM) (please refer to point 4 above).

The IOQM examination, to be held in a single sitting of four hours duration, will consist of two parts: **Part A** and **Part B**

**Part A**: OMR-based paper with**12**questions. Duration:**75 min**. Each question having an integer answer in the range**00-99**. This is equivalent to a reduced version of the original IOQM planned earlier.**Part B**: Subjective paper with**3**questions at INMO level. Duration:**150 min**. This is equivalent to the original INMO planned earlier.

**Eligibility criteria**:

**Category J****:****All the students who had registered, enrolled and were issued valid hall tickets for the IOQM examination scheduled to be held on Jan 9, 2022 are eligible to appear for this IOQM examination.****These students will be issued fresh admit cards once the date of IOQM is announced.****Category S:****All the students who were exempted from the IOQM examination scheduled to be held on Jan 9, 2022 and were eligible to appear for INMO 2022 scheduled to be held on Feb 27, 2022 by virtue of being an****INMO Awardee****in 2021 or earlier and are still eligible to compete for IMO 2022**or an INMO Merit Awardee in 2021**must now appear for this IOQM examination****in order to be in contention for selection to IMOTC 2022. These students need to register themselves for the IOQM, following which they will be issued IOQM admit cards. The Office of the National Coordinator, Mathematical Olympiad Programme will inform these students about the registration process by email by February 10, 2022.**

**Selection scheme for Category J students**:

- For each region (including KVS and JNV) a list consisting of the following items will be prepared:
- Roll numbers of
**top 10**students from classes**8,9,10,11**on the basis of their scores in**Part A.** - Roll numbers of
**top 2**students from**class 12**on the basis of their scores in**Part A.** - Roll numbers of
**2 girl**students under girls’ quota from classes**8,9,10,11**on the basis of their scores in**Part A**.

- Roll numbers of
- For each region (including KVS and JNV) the answer scripts of

**top 30**from classes**8,9,10,11**will be selected for IMOTC on the basis of their**Part B**scores**ONLY**. Ties in the**30th position**will be broken by using the**Part A**scores of the students concerned. If the ties cannot be broken then all students tied in that position will be selected for IMOTC. - The
**top 6**from class 12 will be selected for IMOTC on the basis of their**Part B**scores**ONLY**. Ties in the**6th position**will be broken by using the**Part A**scores of the students concerned. If the ties cannot be broken then all students tied in that position will be selected for IMOTC. - Irrespective of the number of girls among the students selected from classes
**8,9,10,11**in point no. 3, another 5 girls from classes**8,9,10,11**will be selected for IMOTC on the basis of their**Part B**scores**ONLY**.

If the ties cannot be broken then all students tied in that position will be selected for IMOTC. - The students selected in accordance with the criteria described in point no. 3, point no. 4 and point no. 5 will together constitute the
**Junior Batch**of IMOTC. - Any student in Category J who scores at least 20% in

**Part B**of all students in Category S will be evaluated irrespective of their scores in**Part A**. However, the student must appear for Part A as well at the appointed time (it will not be possible to appear only in Part B). - A student in Category S from any one of classes 8,9,10,11 whose
**Part B**score is either equal to or greater than the**Part B**score of the student from any one of classes 8,9,10,11 in the**30th position**as explained in point no. 3 will be selected for IMOTC. - A student in Category S from class 12 whose
**Part B**score is either equal to or greater than the**Part B**score of the student from class 12 in the**6th position**as explained in point no. 4 will be selected for IMOTC. - The students selected in accordance with the criteria described in point no. 9 and point no. 10 will together constitute the
