American Mathematics Contests 10/12

***The 2021 AMC 10/12 will be online competitions.

Every year, the Mathematical Association of America hosts a series of national contests designed to challenge and strengthen the mathematical skills of the country's young people. Every year, at thousands of schools in every state, more than 350,000 students are presented with a set of questions rich in content, designed to make them think and sure to leave them talking.

How to register to take the online AMC 10/12

The AMC 10 and AMC 12 will be offered online on two dates: Nov. 10, 2021 and Nov. 16, 2021. Each contest has an A and a B version, administered on their respective dates. The AMC 10 and AMC 12 contests contain about 12 of the same math problems. You may register for either the AMC 10 or the AMC 12 on each date, but you cannot take both tests on the same date.

AMC 10/12: For students in 9th–12th grade

The American Mathematics Contest 10 (AMC 10) is a 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice examination in secondary school mathematics containing problems which can be understood and solved with algebra and geometry concepts. The American Mathematics Contest 12 (AMC 12) is a 25-question, 75-minute, multiple choice examination in secondary school mathematics containing problems which can be understood and solved with pre-calculus concepts. Two different versions of the contests are given on two dates in November. Each AMC 10 and AMC 12 contest contain about 12 of the same math problems.

Younger, strong competitors are also encouraged to participate. See more at: Mathematical Association of America’s AMC 10/12 website.
