What is the AMC 10/12?
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.
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.
These competitions are administered around the country on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 and Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018. The AMC 10/12 provides an opportunity for high school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers. The AMC 10/12 is the first in a series of competitions that eventually lead all the way to the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME II)

- The AMC 10 is open to students grade 10 and younger who are under 17.5 years of age and the AMC 12 is open to students grade 12 and younger who are under 19.5 years of age.
- The exams are offered on two dates each year, referred to as AMC 10A/12A and AMC 10B/12B. Students can take both an A and a B exam, but not both the AMC 10 and 12 on the same date.
- Each test has 25 multiple choice questions with a time limit of 75 minutes.
- Each question is worth 6 points. 0 points are given for wrong answers, but 1.5 points are given for each question left blank/unanswered.
- The questions test knowledge in algebra, geometry, counting and probability, and number theory. Both tests cover material typically covered in the first few years of high school math. Topics such as trigonometry, complex numbers, and logarithms are only needed for the AMC 12. Calculus is not required for either exam.
- No calculators are allowed on the test.
- The test is given by schools and universities. Contact your school for information on how to register.
What is the difference in the A and B versions of the examinations?
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. Schools can order one or both versions of the tests, so long as they pay the appropriate registration fee for each competition date, and purchase the competition bundles for each date.
Scope of topics
The AMC 10 typically covers curriculum topics up to Grade 10 /Sec 4 of the math syllabus and covers the topics of algebra, inequalities, polynomials, sequences & series, number theory series, arithmetic, sequences & series, geometry, combinatorics and more..
Includes the topics for AMC 10 and trigonometry, advanced algebra and advanced geometry.
- The AMC 10 and 12 are intended for high school level students. They are 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice tests with an emphasis on problem-solving.
- The AMC 10 specifically is for students in grade and below, covering high school curriculum up to grade or equivalent of O-levels
- The AMC 12 includes trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry, but excludes calculus.
- Students who do well on the AMC 10 or AMC 12 are invited to participate in the American Invitational Mathematics Exam(AIME) and a high score on AIME can lead to qualification for the United States of America Mathematics Olympiad (USAMO) for U.S Citizens.
Why take the AMC 10 and AMC 12?
The AMC 10 and 12 exams are the first in the sequence of exams used to qualify for the US Math Olympiad team. Like other math competitions, the AMC 10 and 12 provides a great way for students interested in math to learn new ways to apply their knowledge of math to more advanced problems.
Many schools organize math clubs or teams for students competing on math competitions such as the AMC 10 and 12, which give students a great impetus to learn more math and the opportunity to compete against others. Top scoring students can receive awards and qualify for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME).
Qualifying for AIME:Students taking either AMC 10 or AMC 12 in order to can qualify for the AIME:
- On the AMC 10A and 10B -the top 2.5% qualify for the AIME. Typically scores of 120+ will qualify for AIME, but these vary by year and exam.
- One the AMC 12A and 12B at least the top 5% qualify for the AIME. Typically scores of 100+ will qualify for AIME, but these vary by year and exam.
