MAA-AMC 8, 10 & 12

For over 60 years many excellent exams have been prepared by individuals throughout our mathematical community in the hope that all secondary students will have an opportunity to participate in these problem solving and enriching mathematics experiences. The MAA’s American Mathematics Contests (MAA-AMC) are designed to engage students and teachers in effective mathematical problem solving that is consistent with curricular goals, and to prepare students for future mathematical success.

In United States of America, MAA-AMC is highly recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and especially valuable for applying into Universities. The MAA-AMC program positively impacts the analytical skills needed for future careers in an innovative society. MAA-AMC are a series of examinations and curriculum materials that build problem-solving skills and mathematical knowledge in secondary school students from Year 7 to A-Levels (or Form 1 to Form 6). In Malaysia,

  • MAA-AMC 8 (Open for Year 6-8 students)
  • MAA-AMC 10/12 (Open for Year 9 to A-Levels students)
