## How difficult is AMC 10

The main goal of the AMC 10 is to promote interest in mathematics and to foster talent through the thrill of resolving difficult problems in a timed multiple-choice format, which range in difficulty from the very simple to the extremely complex.

## What is a good score on the AMC 10

High scores on the AMC 10 or 12 can qualify the participant for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), where the top 2.5% typically score between 100 and 115 on the AMC 10 and the top 5% typically score between 85 and 95 on the AMC 12.

## What is the difference between AMC 10 and 12

Although the two exams are intended to be equal in difficulty and topic distribution, the only differences are the competition dates and the fact that each version has a unique set of questions.Dec 2, 2016

## What do I need to know about AMC

Both exams cover material typically covered in the first few years of high school math; only the AMC 12 requires knowledge of trigonometry, complex numbers, or logarithms. The questions test understanding of algebra, geometry, counting and probability, and number theory.

## How do you qualify for AIME

All students who completed the AMC 12 and scored 100 or higher out of a possible 150 or placed in the top 5% of their class are invited to take the AIME, as are all students who completed the AMC 10 and scored 120 or higher out of a possible 150 or placed in the top 2.5%.

## Why the AMCS are trivial

A median is a cevian intersecting the opposite side at its midpoint; if all three medians are drawn, they concur at the centroid of the triangle; it is trivial to show that they will intersect exactly one side of the triangle (you may have to extend sides).Jan 24, 2016

## What is the average AMC 10 score

Similar to the AMC 12, the AMC 10 is a competition for students in grades 10 and below that is offered in most of the same schools (and at the same times), with about 100,000 students taking it annually. The mean score for the test is also about 65.

## How hard is AMC 12 compared to AMC 10

The additional topics tested in AMC 12 but not in AMC 10 are: logarithmic functions, complex numbers, trigonometric functions, general polynomial functions, trigonometric approach to solve geometric problems, advanced 2-dimensional geometry. AMC 12 is NOT significantly more difficult to prepare for than AMC 10.
