    Gateiit Coaching for Olympiads.


    What are the OLYMPIADS?

    International Olympiads in Science and Mathematics are the world championships for school students held every year in a different country.

    The most famous Olympiads are The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), The International Physics Olympiad (IPhO), The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO), The International Biology Olympiad (IBO), The International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) and The International Astronomy Olympiad (IAO).

    Countries send a delegation of students and leaders to participate at the International level. India conducts National Olympiads to identify the best students who can represent India at the international level.


    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 HomiBhabha 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.

    For the purpose of training and selection of students for the Olympiad contest, 25 regions all over the country have been designated and each assigned a Regional Coordinator. Additionally, three groups (Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE), NavodayaVidyalayaSamiti(NVS) and KendriyaVidyalayaSangathana(KVS) have a 'Regional Coordinator' each. The Mathematical Olympiad programme consists of five stages.


  • Stage 1: Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO and pre - RMO): The RMO is a three-hour written test with six or seven problems. On the basis of the performance         in RMO, a certain number of students from each region is selected for Stage 2 (INMO). The Regional Coordinators are in charge of conducting the RMO in their         respective regions. They have the option of preparing RMO question papers all by themselves or they may choose to use the central RMO question paper prepared         by the Mathematical Olympiad Cell, HBCSE, TIFR. Some regions may hold a pre-RMO examination by way of which students will be selected to appear for RMO.         All pre-RMOs will be conducted by the concerned regions. The format of the pre-RMO paper and the criteria for selecting students for RMO are at the sole         discretion of the respective Regional Coordinator.
  • Stage 2: Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO): The INMO will be held on the first Sunday of February between 1.00 pm and 5.00 pm. Only those         students who are selected in RMO 2015 and those who have received an INMO certificate of merit in 2015 are eligible to appear for the INMO. This contest is a         four-hour written test. On the basis of the INMO, the top 30-35 students in merit from all over the country are chosen as INMO awardees. In addition to INMO         awardees, the next 45-50 students who are in class X or lower and have done well in INMO, but have not qualified as INMO awardee are awarded INMO certificate         of merit.
  • Stage 3: International Mathematical Olympiad Training Camp (IMOTC): The INMO awardees are invited to a month long training camp in April-May each year at the         HomiBhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE), Mumbai. The INMO awards of the previous years who are eligible for IMO 2016 and, in addition, who have         satisfactorily gone through postal tuition throughout the year are invited to the training camp as senior students. The junior students will receive 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 through the         Camp, a team of the best six students is selected from the combined pool of junior and senior batch participants.
  • Stage 4: Pre-departure Training Camp for IMO

  • The selected team of six students goes through another round of training and orientation for about ten days prior to departure for IMO.


  • Stage 5: International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO): The six-member team selected at the end of IMOTC accompanied by a leader, a deputy leader and an         observer represents 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 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.

  • The selection of the members of the Indian team for IMO will be subject to their fulfilling criteria such as age limit, medical fitness, parental consent, etc., as may be applicable. In particular, the selected students need to have a valid Indian passport meeting the visa regulations of the host country. Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) finances international travel of the team, the leader and the deputy leader, while NBHM (DAE) finances the other expenditures connected with the international participation and the entire in-country programme. Students aiming to go through the Mathematical Olympiad programme leading to international participation (IMO) should note that RMO is the first essential step for the programme. To appear for the RMO, the students should get in touch with the RMO co-ordinator of their region well in advance for enrolment and payment of stipulated (nominal) fees.
