# How is the RMO prep going?

This is directed mostly towards Indians who are going to appear for RMO on 1st Dec. How are you preparing yourselves now? Any tips or hints?

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Damn looks like there will be heavy competition from brilliant users alone.

I think all the top 30 from each region should be Brilliant members. Agree?

Staff - 7 years, 8 months ago

Well actually I don't think so because there are a lot of people without frequent access to the internet in India, but surely 15-20 will be brilliant i hope

I agree...

try out the book "Test of Mathematics at 10+2 Level(called TOMATO)"(East-west press) published by The Indian Statistical Institute.has loads of RMO type subjective problems.

Practicing previous years questions....... can I get any tips??? please......

TRY HMMT archives for Algebra, Geometry and Combinatorics: are of great help. I also attempted them at last for practice and it did payoff (Cleared RMO 2011 .)

Can I regard you as my maths teacher on Brilliant :D

Thanks

Any idea how many questions you have to get correct? I have heard rumors ranging from getting only 1 question correct to getting all 6 questions correct.

- 7 years, 8 months ago

It varies from region to region. From each region 30 students are selected according to their performance in RMO. But I think getting 4 or 5 questions correct will ensure you to qualify for InMO.

- 7 years, 8 months ago

Get about half the questions right and you'll probably pass easily.

Anyone here please tell me from where I must start my practice for RMO... This year I missed it, but in 11th class I want to rock in RMO.. please help.. suggest any books..

- 7 years, 8 months ago

Complete 11th class syllabus till the end of summer vacations(NCERT+ ML Khanna is a good combination).

Go for previous year questions too that helps to a great extent.
