Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad 2019-20

One of the major initiatives undertaken by the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) in collaboration with Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) is the Mathematical Olympiad Program. The aim of this program is to identify mathematical talent in the country.

The first stage of this program is Pre- Regional Mathematical Olympiad (PRMO) and is conducted by the Mathematics Teachers Association, India (MTA).

The PRMO Exam will be held on 11th August 2019 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm in different centres all over India. In some regions the exam has been re-scheduled.


In order to register for the PRMO:

  • Candidates must be Indian Citizens
  • Born on or after 1st August 2000
  • They should also be studying in Class 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th

It is the student’s responsibility to determine that she/he satisfies the eligibility norms. If at any stage, it is found that the student is not eligible, she/he will be immediately disqualified.

Exam Pattern

The PRMO 2019 will be a 3 hour test and will have 30 questions. The exam will be conducted in English and Hindi.


The syllabus of PRMO covers topics mostly from Class 11 to Class 12 levels, but the candidates must note that the problems under each topic involve a high level of difficulty. The difficulty level increases from RMO to INMO to IMO.

The syllabus for Mathematical Olympiad (regional, national and international) is pre-degree college mathematics. Topics included are:

  • Arithmetic of integers
  • Geometry
  • Quadratic Equations and Expressions
  • Trigonometry
  • Co-ordinate geometry
  • System of linear equations
  • Permutations and Combinations
  • Factorization of polynomial
  • Inequalities
  • Elementary combinatorics
  • Probability theory and number theory
  • Finite series and complex numbers
  • Elementary graph theory

The syllabus does not include Calculus and Statistics


The result of the PRMO Exam will be declared in the third week of September. The result will be declared online at the official website. Along with the result, HBCSE will also release the state wise cut-off. The final result will be declared by the fourth week of September after considering the discrepancies (if any reported).

The candidates who qualify the PRMO Exam, will be eligible for the next stage of the Mathematics Olympiad Program, the Regional Mathematics Olympiad (RMO)





What is the best time to start preparing for JEE examination?

JEE Main, applicable for admission to IITs, NITs, and CFTIs, is considered to be one of the toughest examinations in India. Every year millions of students sit for JEE, but, only a lucky few clear the rigorous exam. Thus, the foremost question for any Engineering aspirant becomes, “when to start the preparation?”

There is a saying, “The sooner, the better”. Thus, keeping in mind the ever-increasing competition, most aspiring engineers start preparing for JEE from as early as class VIII. A lot of the aspirants start their preparation with online coaching for iit jee. Students who start the preparation at an early stage have added advantages in comparison to those who start late. Various JEE Toppers claim that the best time to start preparing for JEE is along with class IX.

The following are some reasons which will make clear the advantages of starting early:


* The concepts and topics as introduced in class IX form the basics of the questions asked in JEE. Thus, starting from class IX would ensure that the students get a strong hold of all the basic concepts. Some basic research would also prepare the students for class XI which is a drastic change as compared to class IX.

* In comparison to their senior counterparts, IX standard students get ample time to start with the preparation. Availability of time would allow the students to take out a few hours from the daily routine of school and homework, and dedicate this time to go through the syllabus, format, exam pattern, and find the best study material for iit jee. It would also be helpful for students to learn the significance of time management.

* The competition has only increased with the added condition requiring JEE candidates to secure more than 75 percent in XII Boards. The rule ensures that the students preparing for JEE don’t compromise on their XII board examination. Thus, the students who start their preparation in class IX itself can give equal attention to both JEE and XII Boards.

Thus, the hard work the students put in at the early stage would gradually decrease the pressure as they get into higher classes and simultaneously approach the much-awaited JEE Main.

In conclusion, the earlier you start with the preparation, the better chances you have at succeeding. So, buckle down and start with the challenging and rewarding journey of JEE.
