        The AMC 8 contest is for students in the sixth through eighth grade, although accelerated fourth and fifth graders can also take part. 

        AMC 8 is 25 questions in length, and is multiple-choice with no penalty for guessing. The contest takes 40 minutes. A student’s score is the number of problems correctly solved.

Why participate in AMC-8 (quoted from AMC-8 website)

      A special purpose of the AMC 8 is to demonstrate the broad range of topics available for the junior high school mathematics curriculum.

     Additional purposes of the AMC 8 are to promote excitement, enthusiasm and positive attitudes towards mathematics and to stimulate interest in continuing the study of mathematics beyond the minimum required for high school graduation. Developmentally, junior high school students are at a point where attitudes toward school and learning, and perceptions of themselves as learners of mathematics are solidified. It is important that they be provided opportunities that foster the development of positive attitudes towards mathematics and positive perceptions of themselves as learners of mathematics. The AMC 8 provides one such opportunity.


The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) is the oldest and most prestigious nationwide mathematics competition in the United States. It started in 1950 and it is and has been the exclusive pathway for a student to advance to the USA Mathematical Olympiad.

Activities like the American Mathematics competitions organized by the Mathematical Association of America allow and encourage students to excel in an academic sphere. The contest is a rewarding experience where mathematical curiosity and skill are stimulated.  AMC is designed to inspire an interest in mathematics that will lead to academic success, scholarship and a rewarding career.

 Many well-known colleges and universities request scores from AMC contests at the higher grade levels and use them for recruiting and admissions.
