## Pre RMO Sample Paper with Answers

## 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 2024-25?

**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 2024-25 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 2024-25 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.
