Why take the AMC?

Many of our students who score well on the AMC are invited to take the AIME.  Success on the AMC places these students in an elite category that is helpful in the college application process. Some colleges even have a space for AMC scores on their applications. There is no downside to taking this exam. This is another way to help students distinguish themselves as mathematically talented. Remember that your AMC score does not go on your record.

How well did I do?

To get an idea of how to interpret scores, last year on the AMC 10A a score of 76.5 was higher than 75% of all scores nationwide, while a 103.5 was higher than 97.5% of all scores. On the AMC 12A, a 70.5 was higher than 75% and an 87 was higher than 95% of scores nationwide.

What is the exam like?

It is 75 minutes long and has 25 multiple choice questions. You earn 6 points for a correct answer and 1.5 points for each blank question. If you answer incorrectly, you get 0 points. Only guess if you can narrow it down to two choices.
