What is the AMC?
The Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) is a mathematics competition (AMC) is an exam-style mathematics competition containing 25 multiple-choice problems and 5 questions requiring a numerical answer. The paper is completed under exam conditions with duration of 75 minutes. Students are assessed only against other students in the same school year and state. The problems are very easy at the start of the paper and become progressively more difficult to ensure students at all levels will find a point of challenge.
Why should I take part?
The AMC gives students external recognition of their achievements: all students receive a certificate showing their level of achievement and a detailed report showing how they performed on each problem with comparative statistics. Top students in each state are awarded prizes. Certificates received can be an extra addition to your resume, and the exam-style setting is great practice for your exams without the pressure of formal VCE assessment.
