2020 USOMO and USOJMO Qualification Indices
AMC 10 A
AMC 10 B
AMC 12 A
AMC 12 B
What do these cutoffs mean?
After the AIME I and AOIME are scored, the USAMO committee and MAA AMC program will determine the cutoff indexes that will qualify students for USAMO or USAJMO. USA(J)MO qualification scores are determined by AMC 10/12 and AIME scores.
For this 2019-2020 competition cycle, the AMC will uphold this process to determine USO(J)MO qualifiers. Acknowledging that some students may have taken both AIME I and AOIME, both scores will be considered when setting cut-offs for those students. The AIME I and AOIME cutoff scores will be split. The student’s USO(J)MO indexes are calculated as follows:
USOMO Index = AMC 12 Score + 10
AIME I/ AOIME Score
USOJMO Index = AMC 10 Score + 10 AIME I/ AOIME Score
There are many math competitions in the United States. Of those,
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 have a long history of close collaboration with the
MAA‘s , 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 American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) mathematics that determine the United States team for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).
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 math competitions.
Great Benefits of Math Competitions
In an increasingly competitive college application pool, the process of mastering math skills through our courses and participating in the American Math Competitions will help students strengthen and diversify their extracurricular activities. These contests can motivate students’ interest and passion in math, and they can discover their talent through solving challenging problems different from those in the school classes. Many top colleges also request AMC scores as part of the college application process. Both
MIT and Caltech have entry blanks on their official admission application forms for the applicant to enter their best AMC and AIME scores. Ivy League Colleges and Stanford ask for to the AMC and AIME scores in their Supplement to the Common Application Forms. Your children deserve the chance to list these scores on their applications! Good AMC scores will greatly enhance admission opportunities for students to elite colleges.
