14,9122 students worldwide participated in the 2015 AMC 8 contest from over 2,000 schools. In the USA, 113,628 students participated, and the overall national average score is 8.18 out of a maximum of 25. In Maryland, 1,155 students participated and the overall state average score is 9.97. In Virginia, 6,261 students took and the overall state average score is 8.22. In Washington, D.C., 426 students attended and the overall state average score is 6.83.
All our students achieved a score that is much higher than the Maryland/Virginia/D.C. and national average.
There is a total of 76 students in America with a perfect score. 2 of them are from our center. If our Center is a state, our number of perfect scores would have let us beat New York, Ohio, and Florida. Each of these states has only one perfect scorer. Table 2 demonstrates a complete list of the number of students who achieved a perfect score in each state.
