Pre RMO (Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad)

The Indian Mathematical Olympiad begins with the Pre-RMO, or PRMO. The Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad (PRMO) is the full name of the competition. It’s a preliminary round for determining who will compete in the Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO). The National Board for Higher Mathematics has named the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) as the exam’s coordinator (NBHM). The MTA (Mathematics Teachers’ Association) will organise the PRMO test under its supervision. The mathematics olympiad-related events are overseen by NBHM.

Please Note: This page will be updated soon

We have included all information on the PRMO in this article. Those who want to compete at the national level should focus on qualifying for PRMO 2022-2023.
