American Mathematics Contest (AMC)

The American Mathematics Contest (AMC) is a series of exams that provides a way to identify and recognize high-achieving students in middle and high school math.

Competition Details

Introduction: Since having first taken place in 1950, AMC has now become the leader in strengthening the mathematical capabilities of the next generation’s problem-solvers around the world. There are dozens of participating countries, including nearly 3,000 schools in Canada, Britain, France, Singapore, South Korea, India, Belgium, Finland, Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. 

AMC 8 is a multiple-choice math exam designed for middle school students to enhance their problem-solving abilities. The exam consists of 25 questions and has a duration of 40 minutes. It aims to cultivate positive attitudes towards mathematics and analytical thinking, which can be useful in future careers

AMC 10/12 are both multiple-choice math exams in high school mathematics. Each exam consists of 25 questions and has a duration of 75 minutes. The AMC 10 and AMC 12 exams have two versions each, A and B, which share the same administration rules, scoring, and number of questions. However, they differ in terms of the dates they are held and the specific questions included in each version. Despite this, both versions are designed to have an equal level of difficulty and topic distribution.
