Here is the information about RMO 2022-2023 Exam Pattern. Read to this blog and get all the information about RMO Exam Pattern and Syllabus. 

RMO 2022-2023 Exam Pattern: The Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO) is the second phase of the Pre Regional Mathematical Olympiad in the program of IMO. Candidates belonging to a recognized educational board like CBSE, ICSE, and other state boards and who are from classes 8-12 can take part in the Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO) exam. Those who qualify for the first phase i.e., Pre RMO or PRMO, can move on to the second phase of RMO. Here, we have explained the exam pattern of the RMO exam to help students understand the type and number of questions that may appear in the exam. Since olympiad exams are different from school exams, candidates are advised to understand the exam pattern to prepare well and score good marks in the exam. So, here we go. This blog will help you learn the RMO exam pattern, along with other important details like RMO Syllabus and books for your preparation.

The examiner allots marks according to the accuracy level of the answers given by the candidates. In case of incorrect answers or partially correct answers, students will be rewarded with step marking. You must know that regional coordinators can frame their question papers for the RMO exam and have access to the question papers set by the National Board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM). 

Before a candidate moves on to the Regional Mathematical Olympiad, he or she has to qualify for the Pre Regional Mathematical Olympiad exam. Here is the exam pattern for the Pre RMO exam for the convenience of students.
 

Pre-RMO Exam Pattern 

It is the first stage in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) program. The level of difficulty of the exam paper increases with every level. It means that with every increasing phase of the Mathematical Olympiad, the difficulty will be geared up. 
  • Pre RMO Exam question paper 30 objective type 
  • Questions from 1 to 6 are of two marks
  • Questions from 7 to 21 carry three marks 
  • Questions 22 to 30 are of five marks
  • It is mandatory to attempt all the questions. Moreover, there is no negative marking for the incorrect answers.
  • There will be a one or two-digit number as an answer for the students to darken in the OMR sheet. 
  • We suggest that candidate 2 darkened the answer bubble properly so that the OMR machine read the answers properly. Do not mark two answers as it is of no use. 
Candidates are given a copy of the OMR sheet for future reference.
Candidates who qualify for the Pre-regional mathematical Olympiad are eligible for RMO. The first 300 students from classes 8, 9, 10, and 11 and the first 60 students from Class 12 are considered eligible for the regional mathematical Olympiad.

Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO) Exam Pattern

Indian national mathematical Olympiad or INMO is the third phase of the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). Candidates who qualify for the regional mathematical Olympiad are eligible for this exam. 30 students from classes 8, 9, 10, and 11, and 6 students from class 12 are chosen for this third phase of the mathematical Olympiad program. INMO exam generally takes place on the First Sunday of February and goes on for four hours.

The question paper for the INMO exam is set by the National Board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM). However, the exam pattern is similar to that of the RMO exam, containing six descriptive questions carrying 17 marks each. The level of difficulty increases with the increase in the stage.
The first 30 candidates from Classes 8, 9, 10, and 11 and 6 students from Class 12 are chosen for INMO. The remaining 45 students are awarded a certificate of Merit for INMO. 

The students chosen get an opportunity to participate in the INMO Training camp for around 30 days. Considering the talent of students based on multiple tests in the camp, a team of 6 students is selected for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).
