Details of NMTC

Details of NMTC


  • Every candidate except the senior level will take two tests- Preliminary Test and Final Test.
  • Senior (Degree College) level students will take only the final test.
  • The date and time of the examination stipulated by AMTI should be strictly followed and cannot be altered by the centers.

  • The Preliminary test will be conducted in the participating schools itself by the school. AMTI will send the question paper and the other materials to the school mail. The Principal or the authorized school person may download the question paper and the materials and conduct the preliminary examination. The top 10% of students based on the Preliminary test performance will be selected by the respective schools

    • Preliminary test will be of objective type for Primary, Sub-Junior, Junior and Inter levels and will be of 2 hours duration.
    • As the objective of the Competition is to spot out, encourage and recognize the young talents, the papers will be set to match these objectives.
    • In order to encourage the participation of students from various institutions following various curriculums across the Nation, the question papers in the first level will comprise of questions that test their problem solving skills in their respective levels.
    • The Preliminary level questions will comprise of Multiple choice , Fill in the blanks problems, etc. roughly with the following levels of difficulty:
    • > 20% of the questions that are of moderate level
      > 80% of questions with higher level of difficulty, somewhat similar to Olympiad.

    The responses in the preliminary test will be written in the response sheets which will be provided by the AMTI. The institution will conduct the preliminary test in its own premises; the objective type preliminary papers will also be evaluated by the respective institutions (based on the key that will be supplied by AMTI on the next day of preliminary exam.) and the list of top 10% scorers only at each level in the Preliminary Test will be intimated to us.

    Important Note: If more students qualify for any level from an institution, please use your discretion to shortlist and send only 10% to AMTI. In case, additional names are communicated to AMTI, the excess students over and above10%, will be dropped by us.
    Students selected at the Preliminary level test will get certificates which may be treated as the Hall Ticket for the final examination.

  • Only the candidates selected at the preliminary level can appear for the final.
    It is 3-hours test of subjective type questions reflecting the syllabi of PRMO, RMO, INMO and IMO. The final examination will be held in their respective Institutions.
    AMTI will send the question paper and the other materials to the school mail. The Principal or the authorized school person may download the question paper and the materials and conduct the final examination.

  • Answer books of the final test containing the solutions written by participants should be dispatched on the same day of the examination and delayed receipts will not be entertained.

    Answer sheets (un-ruled only, preferably A4 size) for the Final test have to be supplied by the respective schools

    The date and time of the examination cannot be altered by the centers on any account.
