Central Board of Secondary Education has been conducting Group Mathematical Olympiad every year with an aim to strengthen the knowledge of the students, enhance their innate problem solving skills and to identify talent at a young age.
This year the CBSE GMO will be held on 6 th December, 2015 at selected venues in different parts of the country leading to participation in the Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO) and International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). The enclosed brochure gives detailed information about the competition.
There is no specific syllabus for the Examination. Areas of school mathematics such as algebra, geometry, number theory, combinatorics etc. are to be prepared for the test.
The question paper will consist of 6-7 questions of non-routine nature. The question papers of previous years are available at olympiads.hbcse.tifr.res.in/subjects/mathematics
The answer sheets of candidates who appear in CBSE-GMO will be evaluated in CBSE office. CBSE will select a maximum of 30 candidates strictly in order of merit. From this year there will be an additional quota for five girl candidates. Five girls are added apart from the existing merit list of 30 students. Only the selected candidates will be informed about the result and will be eligible to appear in the Indian National Mathematical Olympiad conducted by NBHM. The names of the selected candidates will be communicated to respective schools as well as NBHM for further necessary action. The result will also be available at website www.cbseacademic.in
For more details refer to the notification at http://188.8.131.52/web_material/Circulars/2015/59_Circular-GMO-2015__1_.pdf
However nowhere its mentioned that the paper will be provided individually or in group. I assume that if there are further levels for individual candidates this exams should also be for individual and not for a group.
