The level of the exam will get tougher as per the stages. The difficulty level increases from RMO to INMO to IMO. The Olympiad will include the following topics:

Arithmetic of integers



Elementary Combinatorics

The system of Linear Equations

Probability Theory & Number Theory

Permutations and Combinations

Finite Series and Complex Number

The factorisation of Polynomial

Elementary Graph Theory

Students can also check RMO papers to practice the subjects mentioned above. By practising through such paper, students will get an idea of the trend that is being followed in such olympiads. It also helps the student in analysing their own performance and identification of weak areas.
