The 2018 AIME cutoff scores for the AMC 10 and AMC 12 are:
- AMC 10A: 111
- AMC 12A: 93
- AMC 10A: 108
- AMC 12A: 99
The AMC 12A and AMC 12B cutoffs were determined using the US score distribution to include at least the top 5% of AMC 12A and AMC 12B participants, respectively.
The AMC 10A and AMC 10B cutoffs were determined using the US score distribution to include at least the top 2.5% of AMC 10A and AMC 10B participants, respectively.

Based on our intensive research and comparison of this year’s AMC 10A/12A problem sets with the problem sets of the last 18 years from 2000 to 2017, on Feb. 8, 2018, we predicted that this year’s AMC 10A/12A AIME Cutoff Scores would be:
- AMC 10A: 110
- AMC 12A: 93
On Feb. 16, 2018, we predicted that this year’s AMC 10B/12B AIME Cutoff Scores would be:
- AMC 10A: 108
- AMC 12A: 93
For more details, see
Please note that the cutoff 111 is completely the same as 110 because the score 110 is not attainable. However, if we look at
then we see that the score 111 was never an AMC 10 cutoff score before. Instead, the AMC office used 110 for the cutoff four times:
- 2000 AMC 10
- 2004 AMC 10A
- 2016 AMC 10A
- 2016 AMC 10B
This is why our team predicted that the score 110 should be an cutoff.
Our prediction for the 2018 AMC 10A, AMC 12A, and AMC 10B AIME Cutoff Scores came true!
Very surprisingly, this year’s official AMC 12B AIME cutoff 99 is higher than the AMC 12A AIME cutoff 93. However, this year’s AMC 12B was clearly harder than this year’s AMC 12A. Our prediction for the 2018 AMC 12A AIME cutoff was 93. We DO believe this is much more reasonable!

Our Students
In 2017, we have 61 students who are qualified to take the AIME either through the AMC 10A/12A or AMC 10B/12B. One of our students was among the 28 Perfect Scorers worldwide on the AMC 10A: Austen M., and two of our students were among the 65 Perfect Scorersworldwide on the AMC 10B: Ashwin A. and Brad Z. Remarkably, eight middle schoolers and one elementary schooler qualified for the AIME, which is geared toward high school students. Very impressively, Bryan Z., a 6th grader, gained a score of 132 out of 150 on the AMC 10B.

In 2016, we have 36 students who are qualified to take AIME either through AMC 10A/12A or AMC 10B/12B. One of our students was among the 23 Perfect Scorers worldwide on the AMC 10A: Joel (Junyao) T. Particularly, seven middle schoolers and one elementary schooler qualified for the AIME, which is geared toward high school students. Pravalika P., a 6th grader, got a 115.5 out of 150 on the AMC10B, which is very impressive. Read more at: 2016 AIME Qualifiers Announced — 36 Students Qualified for AIME
From 2011 to 2015, in total, 37 students scored above 120 on the American Mathematics Contest 10 (AMC 10) and qualified for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME); 26 students scored above 100 on the American Mathematics Contest 12 (AMC 12) and qualified for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME); 3 students qualified for the USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO), the highest level of math competition for high school students in the USA.

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 all AMC8/10/12 and AIME Official Problems and Official Solutions as shown in the article ” American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) Materials,” which have formed our “big data” system, a golden resource for our students, who are the ultimate beneficiaries.
