International Olympiads in Science and Mathematics is the world championships for school students held every year in a different country.
One of the famous Olympiad is The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), The International Physics Olympiad (IPhO), The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) and The International Biology Olympiad (IBO)
MATHEMATICAL OLYMPIADThis Olympiad in India, leads to participation of students in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is organized by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education. Its main purpose is to chalk out mathematical talent among pre-university students in the country.
To select and train the students for the Olympiad contest, 25 regions all over the country have been designated and assigned a Regional Coordinator. Also, (Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathana (KVS) have a ‘Regional Coordinator’ each. The Mathematical Olympiad programme consists of five stages.
Stage 1:  Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO and pre - RMO): It is a three-hour written test with six to seven problems. On the basis of the performance, a certain number of students from each region are selected for Stage 2 (INMO).
  • Stage 2:   Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO): It will be held on the first Sunday of February between 1.00 pm and 5.00 pm. 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.
  • 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 Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE), Mumbai. 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.
  • Stage 4: Pre-departure Training Camp for IMO
    The selected team of six students goes through another round of training and orientation for approx ten days before 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. 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.
    Olympiads are most prestigious exams in the country. Students have to go through a tough process to win!
    Students who represent India in the International Olympiads in Physics / Chemistry /Mathematics / Informatics and Astronomy automatically qualify for KVPY Fellowship. Many big organisations like Infoysys, Sasken, NASSCOM etc. also give prizes to the participants and winners of the International Olympaids.
    Usually students appear for the Olympiads in Class XI but brilliant students can appear for the stage I exam even in lower classes and increase their number of attempts.

    2. To prepare well and to acheive gold medal in IMO, Caoching class also plays vital role. My friends daughter joined Catalyser and at the end of year, he was happy to see her results as she cracked many competitive exams along with IIT.

    3. Practice and getting good study material is always helpful in order to qualify Olympiad Exams with good scores. Thanks for sharing your insights as it will help in getting an overview about the Olympiad Exams.
