New Delhi: A record 114 students from Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL), the national leader in test preparatory services, have qualified for the Regional Mathematical Olympiad Programme in India (RMO) 2019. Resulting in a rise of an impressive 27% from 2018 when 90 students were selected, registering one of the highest growths in the test preparation sector in the country for RMO.
As a matter of pride, the number of selections from Aakash Institute for RMO have been steadily rising for the past few years. 2018’s 90 selections were a whopping 278% rise from 2017 when 28 students had been selected for the Olympiad, a testimony of the innovative teaching methodology, curriculum and faculty at Aakash Institute. In fact, a student from Aakash Institute, Akash Sinha, has the distinction of being the All India Kendriya Vidyalaya Topper for RMO for 2019.
RMO is one of the major initiatives undertaken by the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM). Its main purpose is to spot mathematical talent among pre-university students in the country.

Congratulations to all our students who performed well in the RMO exam 2019. The credit goes to the hard work put in by the students and faculty as well as the quality test preparation imparted at Aakash.”
RMO is the second stage of the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). The Mathematical Olympiad Programme in India is organized by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) on behalf of the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India.
The RMO is a three-hour examination in which students solve six problems. Based on their performance in the RMO exam, students from Class 8th-12th will now compete in the next stage, which is the Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO).
Aakash Institute aims to help students in their quest to achieve academic success. It has a centralized in-house process for curriculum and content development and faculty training and monitoring, led by its National Academic Team. Over the years, students from Aakash have proven a selection track record in various medical and engineering entrance exams, competitive exams and Olympiads.
