The National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) will conduct Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO) on January 17, 2010. The top thirty students will be called to attend an intensive training camp in Problem solving in mathematics in the month of May. About twenty students out of these thirty, who show good performance in the camp and subsequently in the postal problem assignments, are called for the camp the next year.
These students are also awarded scholarship by NBHM. A team of six students is selected to take part in the International Mathematical Olympiad, out of the students attending the camp. Every student, among the top thirty has a chance to be selected in the team twice depending on his/her performance.
Our region sends a team of about 30 students depending on the merit of the students to appear in the INMO test. The selection of these students is done in two tiers by firstly screening test and then followed by Regional Mathematical Olympiad test. The first round will be held on Sunday
