More Information About Format

The format of the test consists of several competition rounds outlined below.

Individual Round

The individual round is a 12-question, 75-minute test. All of the questions are weighted equally and have only numerical answer.

Marthon Round

In the "mathathon" round, you work together with your team to solve 6 or 7 small packets of questions. When you submit your final answers to one packet, your team may move onto the next one.

The point values for each question increase, and so does the difficulty. You may spend as much time as you'd like on any one packet, but your team will only have 75 minutes to get through as many packets as it can.

(Note: this round is similar to HMMT's Guts round.)

Tiebreaker Round

The individual tiebreaker round is a 4-question, 45-minute, short answer test. Ties are first broken by score, then broken by time.

Mixer Round

For the "mixer" round, we randomize the teams. Each of the newly formed teams will have 45 minutes to work on a variety of challenging questions.

The individuals in the tiebreaker round will arrive late to this event. They will be split into teams and have to catch up to the rest of the room!
