2018 AIME Qualifiers Announced — 73 Students Qualified for the AIME

We have 73 students who are qualified to take the AIME either through the AMC 10A/12A or the AMC 10B/12B, while we have not yet so far received all the complete results from the MAA/AMC. All the details can found at:  2018 AMC 10/12 AIME Cutoff Scores

  • Two of our students were among the 35 Perfect Scorers worldwide on the AMC 10A: Austen M. and Jason W.
  • Two of our students were among the 21 Perfect Scorers worldwide on the AMC 12B: Kaan D. and Edward W. 
  • Remarkably, 11 middle schoolers and 2 elementary schoolers qualified for the AIME!

Contests Number of National Honor Roll Awards Number of National Distinguished Honor Roll Awards Total
AMC 10A 15 13 28
AMC 10B 7 9 16
AMC 12A 8 10 18
AMC 12B 5 6 11
Total 35 38 73

11 middle schoolers and 2 elementary schoolers qualified for the AIME, which is geared toward high school students.

In addition, 61 young students in grade 8 or below scored at least 90 points and ranked among the top 10% of all test takers.  These students will receive the Certificate of Merit Award from the MAA/AMC.

We had an unusually large number of students this year qualifying through both the AMC 10 and AMC 12. Actually, four-fifths of our students qualified for the AIME. The other one-fifths of our students came extremely close to qualifying. All of their hard work has paid off!

The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are part of the United States of America Math Olympiad (USAMO). Students must score highly on these tests in order to take part in the AIME, and then the USAJMO/USAMO exam, which is used to choose members for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

We are very proud of our students’ great achievements and wish them well in the AIME and USAJMO/USAMO.

Our Uniqueness

We have a long history of close collaboration with the MAA‘s American Mathematics Competitions (AMC), which are dedicated to strengthening the mathematical capabilities of our nation’s youth, and are the first of a series of competitions in high school mathematics that determine the United States team for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). There are many math competitions in the United States. Of those, only AMC → AIME → USAMO sequence would take you to the IMO (International Math Olympiad), the highest level math competition for high school students in the world.

We are only one in the Washington DC metropolitan area to offer elementary, middle, and high-school level competition math courses. Our students have received top scores and awards at prestigious national and math competitions. We have collected 116 full-length real AMC 10/12 problems sets containing 2,960 problems, as described in the article “116 Full-length Real AMC Problems Sets are a Golden Resource to Our AMC 10/12 Prep Program.” Particularly, we have additional 3,000 brand new problems at the level of the AMC 10/12, taken from the licensed AMC Database. In addition, we have also collected all AMC8/10/12 and AIME Official Solutions as shown in the article “American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) Materials.” All these materials have formed a golden resource for our students, who are the ultimate beneficiaries.
