I am the M in STEM! MAA American Mathematics Competitions




Congratulations to all AMC 10/12 participants. Thank you for joining us this cycle. Qualifying thresholds for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME) and other distinctions are below.

For those students who qualify for the AIME based on their AMC 10/12 scores:

The AIME I must be administered on Thursday, Feb. 1 between 1:30 PM and 5:30 PM ET.

The AIME II must be administered on Wednesday, Feb. 7 between 1:30 PM and 5:30 PM ET. 

Students cannot take both the AIME I and AIME II.

Qualifying students are automatically enrolled in the AIME I in their student portals. If Competition Managers are unable to administer the AIME I, they may register for the AIME II on Wednesday, Feb. 7, by completing the AIME II Registration Form by Feb. 1. Competition Managers may administer both the AIME I and II.  Additionally, students who need to switch testing locations for emergency reasons must ask their original competition manager to fill out a Change of Venue form on their behalf. 

Both forms will be available in the AMC Platform Dashboard under “Competition Resources.” Further instructions for Digital and Print & Scan administration of the AIME will be emailed to Competition Managers.

Note: Thresholds have been set after thorough review. The MAA AMC will continue investigating suspicious cases and disqualifying any students who violated its policies.



It's that time of year! Registration for MAA's American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) program is open. The AMC leads the nation in strengthening the mathematical capabilities of the next generation of problem-solvers. Over 300,000 students participate annually in over 6,000 schools; we hope you'll join! Mark the AMC Competition dates on your calendar; we hope you'll join!

AMC Competition Dates

  • AMC 8: January 18-24, 2024

Click here to register today! Review all the important dates and deadlines here.


The MAA AMC is a school-based competition program hosted by public and private educational institutions; it requires competition managers to proctor the competition at a physical location. Competition managers are strongly encouraged to create a contingency plan with alternate locations and/or dates. Learn more about our policies here.

  • Alternate Dates For the AMC 8, Competition Managers may reschedule for a date that falls later within Competition Week in case of inclement weather and other closures.
  • Alternate Locations If the competition manager’s registered location is closed on the official competition dates, the competition manager may administer the competition at a library, another school, a university, or a place of worship. However, the competition manager must receive approval from the school/center administration before offering the competition at an alternative location.


The competitions program has always required competition managers to be affiliated with a physical location. During the pandemic lockdown, we temporarily allowed remote proctoring solely in response to nationwide closures for COVID-19. Starting with the 2022-23 cycle, the AMC will return to its original in-person format. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed.

We are aware that elements of the AMC 10/12 A competition were leaked. We have been monitoring online channels and have already identified the source of the leak. This specific test site has been disqualified from this competition cycle and banned from participating in the MAA AMC in the future. 

The MAA AMC administration platform has mechanisms in place, utilizing both human resources and artificial intelligence, to identify broad statistical anomalies, as well as anomalies within individual competitors. This will inform the scoring of the competition and aid in disqualifying those found in violation of our policies.

We are committed to the integrity, fairness, and security of these competitions. Going forward, the procedures for distributing the competitions, both domestic and international, will be restructured. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to investigate these reports and monitor for subsequent incidents.
