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 The AMC 10/12 and AIME are offered on two distinct dates each cycle to accommodate school/center closure on the official AMC 10/12 A and AIME I dates. If the school/center is canceled on the day of the AMC 10 A, AMC 12 A, or AIME I, the competition manager should contact AMC customer service immediately at to register the location for the AMC 10 B, AMC 12 B, or AIME II, respectively. Additional competition dates are not offered for the AMC 10 B, AMC 12 B, and AIME II if the school/center is canceled on these dates.
  • 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.
