Results are given below for the 1996 AMC, held on Tuesday 30 July. There are 11 perfect scores, 4 from Australia, 3 from Singapore and 4 from Bulgaria. The Singapore perfect scores came from 11,000 entries.

For the first time in its 19 year history, entries in the AMC were lower than for the previous year. Enrolment numbers 521,542 (from just over 540,000 in 1995). The main reason for this is industrial disputation in Australian Secondary schools. Four regions of Australia saw work bans in place, prohibiting activity outside the basic teaching process.

For the first time there is a medallist from Brunei and one from Ireland.

Medals were presented to successful Australian and New Zealand students at a function held in the Australian Academy of Science, Canberra, on 1 November. Presentations were made by the Governor-General of Australia, His Excellency Sir William Deane, AC, KBE.

Manila hosted the presentation to 3 Philippines medallists on 22 October at the Shangri-La Hotel. Guest of Honour was the Under Secretary of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Dr Estrella F Alabastro. Other invited guests included His Excellency Mr Evan Williams, Acting Ambassador for Australia.

The Brunei presentation was held at the University of Brunei Darussalam on 25 October. The Guest of Honour at the second AMC prizes and awards ceremony was Mr. Hj Abdul Latif bin Hj. Abrahim, the Director of Aacademy of Brunei Studies, the personal representaive of Pehin Dato Awang Hj. Abu Bakar bin Hj Apong, Vice-Chancellor of Universiti Brunei Darussalam. Hj. Abdu Latif also read a speech on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor. Other invited guests were, Hj. Mohd Dennis bin Hj. Roslee, the Director of Schools and His Excellency Mr. Neal Davis, the Australian High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam. The AMC in Brunei Darussalam has been organized by UBD and Ministry of Education each year since 1990.

The Singapore presentation was held at the Australian High Commission on 29 October with Acting Australian High Commissioner His Excellency Mr David Pearce as Guest of Honour.

A Bulgarian presentation was made in Sofia in early 1997. The Irish presentation was held in the Australian Embassy in Dublin in early 1997.
