Answer: Our entire country is divided into 25 regions for the pre-RMO stage. The areas are categorized depending on the need for training and selection. There are 25 regions nationwide in which RMO exams are conducted. Each part is assigned under a Regional Coordinator who declares the result at the appropriate time.
Two groups of schools, the JNVs (Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya) and the KVs (Kendriya Vidyalaya), are assigned their regions. From these schools up to 5% of the top performers from 8, 9, 10, 11 standards, and 1% from class 12 qualify for RMO. Students are assigned their region based on their postal code.
