The National Science Olympiad is organised every year to motivate students to strive for better and deeper understanding of scientific facts and data and to enhance their reasoning, analytical and problem solving skills All school students are invited to participate in this unique contest that tests their understanding, level of knowledge, applications and power of reasoning.


The Indian Science Olympiad programme is taken care of by Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (a Constituent of TIFR, Mumbai) and is fully supported by Department of Atomic Energy.


Stage 1: Preliminary examination or National Standard Examination in which 40,000 students appear in the country.

Stage 2: Out of 40,000 students, only 300 students get selected in each subject. These selected students appear in the INO (Indian National Olympiads) at various centers in India.

Stage 3: Only 30 students from each group qualify for the OCSE – Orientation cum Selection Camp organized by Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE). This camp is 20 to 30 days long in which students have to undergo the rigorous training and testing procedures. 5 to 6 students from each subject represent the country in the International Olympiads (IO’s). They are further geared up for the International camp in HBCSE, Mumbai for another 15 days.

Stage 4: The final 4th stage is the participation of Indian teams in the International Olympiads held in July-August every year. The venue of the International event varies year to year in each subject being USA, Europe, Singapore, Japan, India etc.



The Mathematics Olympiad programme is currently run in collaboration with the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, Mumbai. One main purpose of this activity is to support mathematical talent among high school students in the country.

This programme consists of 4 stages and is similar to the Science Olympiads programme, except that it has no experimental component.

Stage 1: Regional Mathematical Olympiad (RMO) is held in each region normally between September and the first Sunday of December each year. All high school students up to class XII are eligible to appear for RMO. On the basis of the performance in RMO, a certain number of students from each region are selected to appear for the second stage.

Stage 2: Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO)INMO is held on the first Sunday of February each year at various centres in different regions. Only students selected on the basis of RMO from different regions are eligible to appear for INMO.

Stage 3: International Mathematical Olympiad Training Camp (IMOTC). The INMO certificate awardees are invited to a month long training camp (junior batch) conducted in May-June, each year. In addition, INMO awardees of the previous year that have satisfactorily gone through postal tuition throughout the year are invited again for a second round of training (senior batch).

Stage 4: International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). The team selected at the end of the camp, a “leader” and a “deputy leader,” represent India at the IMO that is normally held in July in a different member country of IMO each year.
