AMC 10/12A Update
The 2017 AMC 10/12 A AIME Cutoff Scores are:
- AMC 10A: 112.5
- AMC 12A: 96
These cutoffs were determined using the US score distribution to include at least the top 5% of AMC 12A participants and at least the top 2.5% of AMC 10A participants. If you scored the cutoff score or above on these competitions, you have qualified for the 2017 AIME. Congratulations! Learn more about the AIME here.
AMC 10/12B Update
After a thorough investigation we have disqualified students and schools who did not uphold academic ethics during the AMC 10/12B exam last month. Any students or schools who do not follow AMC procedures during the administration of our exams are ineligible for AIME qualification.
As stated at the beginning of this AMC cycle, the AIME threshold is established using US and Canada student scores only. In 2017, the student score distribution from the US and Canada helped us set the AIME cutoff of at least the top 2.5% for the 10B exam and at least the top 5% of the 12B exam eligible scores.
We rely on our competition managers and student participants each year to help uphold the integrity of the MAA American Mathematics Competitions. Thank you for your commitment to academic ethics and the AMC program.
The AIME qualifying scores for the 2017 AMC 10/12B are:
- AMC 10B: 120
- AMC 12B: 100.5
These cutoffs were determined using the score distribution from US and Canadian schools. They reflect the inclusion of at least the top 5% of AMC 12B participants and at least the top 2.5% of AMC 10B participants. If you scored at or above the cutoff score on these competitions, you have qualified for the 2017 AIME, congratulations!
