Administered around the country in February, AMC 10 and AMC 12 are the first in a series of competitions that eventually lead all the way to the International Mathematical Olympiad.

The American Invitational Mathematics Examination

The AIME is an intermediate examination between the AMC 10/12 and USAMO, open to top-scoring AMC 10/12 students. AIME is a 15-question, 3-hour examination in which each answer is an integer number from 0 to 999. Administered to invited students in March, AIME is part of the American Mathematics Competitions series, culminating with the International Mathematical Olympiad.
