2017 AMC 8 Honor Roll and Distinguished Honor Roll Cut-off Scores

AMC 8-New
The Distinguished Honor Roll (top 1%) level is 20 (compared to 22 last year).
The Honor Roll (top 5%) level is 17 (compared to 18 last year).
The Achievement Honor Roll (6th Grade and below) level is 15.

Based on our intensive research and comparison of this year’s AMC 8 problem set  with the problem sets of the last 18 years from 1999 to 2016, we predicted that this year’s AMC 8 Honor Roll and Distinguished Honor Roll cut-off scores would be 17 and 20, respectively. Our prediction came true! For more details, please see:


This year’s AMC 8 was more difficult than the last year’s AMC 8. Some hard problems were even AMC 10 level. For example, Problem 23 and Problem 24 on the 2017 AMC 8 are two typical AMC 10 hard problems.

Because the AMC 8 problems are getting harder, we must practice not only previous AMC 8 problems but also easy, medium, and even high difficulty level problems from previous AMC 10 to do well on the AMC 8.
