AMC 10/12

AMC 10/12 Information

What is the AMC 10/12?

  • The AMC 10/12 is a 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice examination open to any high school student designed to promote problem solving and creative thinking. It is the first contest in a series run by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), which culminates in prestigious mathematical olympiads such as the USAMO and the IMO.
  • The AMC 12 is the harder version of the test, while the AMC 10 is only open to 10th graders or below. The top 5% of AMC 12 test-takers qualify for the next round, the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME), while only 2.5% of AMC 10 test-takers do. The AMC score, along with the AIME score, determines the next level of qualification, the USA(J)MO.
