Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad

(Redirected from IOQM)

The Pre-Regional Mathematical Olympiad (Pre-RMO) is the first of series of math tests held in India to determine the participants of the IMO. It is usually held in August. High-scoring participants move on to take the India Regional Mathematical Olympiad.

Region: India
Type: Free Response
Difficulty: 2-5
Difficulty Breakdown:

Problem 1-10: 2-3
Problem 11-20: 3-4
Problem 21-30: 4-5


From 2017 to 2019 the test had 30 questions and lasted for 3 hours. In 2021-22, the contest was reduced to 12 questions. Since 2021-22, PRMO and RMO have been merged into IOQM. Each answer is a one or two digit positive integer. The test covers pre-college math topics, especially algebra, number theory, combinatorics, and geometry. In particular, none of the problems require calculus or statistics.

In 2023, RMO has been brought up again and PRMO has been renamed to IOQM(Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Mathematics). In 2023, the test has 30 problems to be solved in 3 hours with 10 problems each of 2 marks, 3 marks and 5 marks contributing to the total of 100 maximum marks.
