AMC 10/12

The AMC 10/12 is a 25 question, 75 minute multiple choice test. Problems generally increase in difficulty as the exam progresses. Calculators were permitted on old AMC tests; however, as of 2008 and later, calculators are not permitted for use.

The AMC 10 is scored in a way that penalizes guesses. Correct answers are worth 6 points, incorrect questions are worth 0 points, and unanswered answers are worth 1.5 points, to give a total score out of 150 points. From 2002 to 2006, unanswered questions were awarded 2.5 points. In 2006 and 2007, unanswered questions were awarded 2 points. Students that are in the top 2.5% of the AMC 10 contest are invited to take the AIME.


The AMC 10 tests mathematical problem solving with arithmetic, al gebra, counting, geometry, number theory, and probability and other secondary school math topics. Problems are designed to be solved by students without any background in calculus or trigonometry.
