Pre RMO Sample Paper with Answers

Due to Covid - 19, there will be no PRMO and RMO this year. A three-hour examination known as the Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Mathematics (IOQM) was conducted by the Mathematics Teachers Association (India)(MTA)(I). Read More about IOQM.

IOQM syllabus and examination format will be similar to PRMO this year. 

Solving sample papers plays a vital role while preparing for the Pre Regional Math Olympiad (RMO). The experts at Vedantu recommend solving as many sample papers as possible to crack the exam. One can avail the Pre RMO sample paper 1 on Vedantu’s site. Provided by our experts, it is the best way to understand the exam pattern and solve relevant questions. These Pre RMO sample paper 1 is solved by our Maths wizards who are dedicated to training students for such contests.

All About the PRMO

The Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad (PRMO) is a Mathematics-based National Level Examination Cum Scholarship Programme, conducted by the Mathematics Teachers’ Association (MTA) under the supervision of HBCSE. PRMO is the first stage of the series of olympiads, conducted by Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE), to identify the best candidates, which may represent India in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). 

PRMO is a 3 hours long examination, comprising 30 questions (7 questions worth 2 marks, 15 worth 3 marks, and 8 questions of 5 marks). Even though being the first tier of all the olympiad series exams, Pre-RMO is still quite tough for an exam. To conquer the PRMO exam requires having a genuine love for Mathematics and a lot of dedication towards the exam. The difficulty level of PRMO questions is quite higher than school-level maths problems. Therefore, students need to work on their analytical reasoning skills.

Practice makes a man perfect. To be the best at any competitive examination, practising hard is a must. Now, you can take your practice to the next level with the help of our PRMO sample papers, available at the end of the page. Sample papers provide you with a complete understanding of the exam pattern and marking schemes. Also, students after completing the sample papers can cross-check themselves with the help of Model solutions and answer keys. By doing so, students will be able to monitor their progress and get to know their strong and weak points.

FAQs on Pre RMO Sample Paper 1

1. Are Pre-RMO and IOQM exams the same?

Ans: Till last year, there were two separate exams, namely Pre-RMO and RMO, first and second stages of the five-stage Indian Mathematical Olympiad, conducted by Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE). 

But now, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, both of these exams are combined to form one single layer IOQM (Indian Olympiad qualifier in Mathematics) test. This is done to reduce the pressure on the students. HBSCE, Mathematics Teachers Association of India (MTAI) and Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT) will jointly organise the IOQM test. The IOQM syllabus will be completely similar to Pre-RMO. This means IOQM is the same as the PRMO test, but only for this year.

2. What are the benefits of taking PRMO Sample Papers? 

Ans: Referring to PRMO sample papers can provide numerous benefits to the students taking part in it.

  • Pre RMO Sample papers provide you with a complete understanding of the exam pattern and marking schemes

  • With the help of solving sample papers, the students can come up with their own strategy to save up their time at the exam.

  • Students will also be to find out the important topics from the Pre RMO syllabus. Hence they can concentrate on those more than others.

  • Students can also be able to find the solutions to these PRMO sample papers, from our website, to cross-check themselves.

3. What is the syllabus for the Pre-RMO exam 2023?

Ans: Pre-RMO exam covers various topics from pre-university Maths but does not include statistics and Calculus. Major topics of this exam are mentioned below: 

  • Arithmetic of Integers

  • Geometry

  • Co-ordinate Geometry

  • Trigonometry

  • Inequalities

  • System of Linear Inequalities

  • Quadratic equations and expressions

  • Permutations and Combination

  • Factorization of Polynomials

  • Elementary Combinatorics

  • Finite series and complex numbers

  • Probability theory

  • Number theory

  • Elementary graph theory

All of these topics are covered in the PRMO 2023 exam, but the main chapters that the participating student must get hold of are Algebra, Geometry, Number Theory and Combinatorics.

4. Who is in charge of conducting Pre RMO?

Ans: The Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad (PRMO), is the first stage of the, 5-stages long, Mathematical Olympiad programme. National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) is the actual body that is in charge of all the Mathematical olympiad-related activities. Besides, NBHM has appointed the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) as the coordinator of the Pre-RMO exam.  Every year, under the strict supervision of HBCSE, the Mathematics Teachers Association (MTA), organises the Pre-RMO, which is the first tier examination of MOP (Mathematical Olympiad Programme). 

5. What are the best books to prepare for the Pre RMO 2023 exam?

Ans: Some of the best books for Students taking part in the Pre RMO examination are - An Excursion in Mathematics - M R Modak, S A Katre and V V Acharya and V M Sholapurkar.
