Earlier this week, the MAA released official cutoffs for qualifying for this year’s AIME competition, as well as the scores needed for distinction and honor roll. The scores are as follows:
|AMC 10A||AMC 10B||AMC 12A||AMC 12B|
|Honor Roll of Distinction||124.5||120||123||120|
What do these scores mean?
- AIME Cutoff: Students scoring this value or higher qualify for this year’s AIME competition, held on March 11th, 2020.
- Honor Roll of Distinction: Students scoring this value or higher represent the top 1% of scores.
- Distinction: Students scoring this value or higher represent the top 5% of scores.
Note: In previous years, the AIME Cutoff score was often the same as the Distinction score. However, more students were invited to take this year’s AIME, so the cutoff score is lower. (Thanks to the MAA for clarifying this by email for us!)
(# correct) × 6 + (# skipped) × 1.5
