Mathematics Olympiad - Last date of application : October 25, 2012

Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education is the nodal centre of the country for Olympiad programmes in mathematics and sciences including astronomy. The programmes aim at promoting excellence in science and mathematics among pre-university students.

The Mathematics Olympiad is conducted under the aegis of the National Board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM). The programme is financially supported by Government of India, in particular, by Board of Nuclear Sciences (Department of Atomic Energy), Department of Science and Technology, Department of Space and Ministry of Human Resource Development.

One main purpose of this activity is to support mathematical talent among high school students in the country. NBHM has taken on the responsibility for selecting and training the Indian team for participation in the International Mathematical Olympiad every year.

The Mathematics Olympiad Programme leading to participation in the International Mathematical Olympiad consists of the following stages:

Stage 1: Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO)RMO is held in each region normally between September and the first Sunday of December each year.

Stage 2: Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO)INMO is held on the first Sunday of February each year at various Centres in different regions. Only students selected on the basis of RMO from different regions are eligible to appear for INMO. INMO is a 4-hour written test.

Stage 3: International Mathematical Olympiad Training Camp (IMOTC)The INMO certificate awardees are invited to a month long training camp (junior batch) conducted in May-June, each year. In addition, INMO awardees of the previous year that have satisfactorily gone through postal tuition throughout the year are invited again for a second round of training (senior batch).

Stage 4: International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO)The team selected at the end of the camp, a "leader" and a "deputy leader," represent India at the IMO that is normally held in July in a different member country of IMO each year.

Travel to IMO venue and return takes about two weeks. India has been participating in IMO since 1989. Students of the Indian team who receive gold, silver and bronze medals at IMO receive a cash prize of Rs. 5,000/-, Rs. 4,000/- and Rs. 3,000/- respectively, from NBHM during the following year at a formal ceremony at the end of the training camp.

For kerala region , CUSAT is conducting the RMO test on December 2, 2012 . those who are interested in participating this, should apply through your School Principal on or before October 25, 2012.
