Q: What is the AMC 10 or AMC 12 competition?
The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are both 25-question, 75-minute, multiple-choice examinations in high school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills.
Q: What would my student stand to gain by participating in AMC?
In addition to the adrenaline-inducing thrill of participating in competition math, AMC 10/12 is the first in a series of competitions that eventually lead all the way to the International Mathematical Olympiad (see Invitational Competitions).
Q: What grade levels can participate in AMC 10 or AMC 12?
The AMC 10 is for students in 10th grade and below, and covers the high school curriculum up to 10th grade. Students in grade 10 or below and under 17.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 10. The AMC 12 covers the entire high school curriculum including trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry, but excluding calculus. Students in grade 12 or below and under 19.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 12.
Q: I see you offer both AMC 10/12 ‘A’ and AMC 10/12 ‘B’ administrations of these texts. Are there any differences between these administrations?
Both the A and the B versions of the AMC 10 and the AMC 12 have the same number of questions, the same scoring and the same rules for administration. The only differences are the competition dates and that each version has a distinct set of questions, although the two examinations are designed to be equal in difficulty and distribution of topics.
Q: What about the AMC 8 competition? Does AJ plan to host that event, too?
Absolutely! The AMC 8 competition is held on January 18, 2022 and is taken by students in middle school who are younger than 14.5 years. We plan to send a separate email about that competition soon!
Q: Can a student take both the ‘A’ and ‘B’ exams?
Yes, as long as a student is eligible to take the appropriate competitions. That is, a 10th grader or below can take the both AMC 10 A and the AMC 10 B, the AMC 12 A and the AMC 12 B, etc, and an 11th or 12th grader can take the AMC 12 A and the AMC 12 B.
Q: What is the deadline to register?
AMC 10/12 ‘A’ competitions: October 15, 2021
AMC 10/12 ‘B’ competitions: October 22, 2021
