Math Olympiad: In Search of Queen of Pearls

// March 21st, 2013 // Maths Olympiad (RMO, IMO, INMO)

Are you still in deep and prolonged slumber waiting for the day to dawn? Never, never you ever do that. Maths Olympiad has already dawned far before you punctuated your slumber. So waste not your time and get to gear yourself for the consummate preparation.  Being a competition categorizing itself in the list of the internationally prestigious ones, it is never going to be an easy task. After all you are aiming at something that not everyone can think of.

To boost, guide, nurture and finally to direct your mathematical talent for the overall good of yourself and the world at larger perspective, National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) has carved a way that you need to undergo. You cannot jump and reach the highest without undergoing the previous stages. Each and every stage weighs equal in importance. Unless and until the regional and national levels are qualified, you cannot dream of having an international exposure and hence each and every stage must be equally valued. The question papers will be identical in both regional and national level. But in a big country like India, if only 30-35 candidates get merit certificate at the national level, you can imagine the degree of difficulties it encompasses.

But again competition is competition. Without hard work in right direction with perpetual practice and perseverance, nothing can be achieved. Competitions instill confidence and courage in us and therefore it should be undertaken with high spirit. Huge participation and scanty selection can make anyone realize that it is somewhat like searching the queen of pearls in the wilderness of salamander in a little time.
