AMC comment

Congratulations to all the students who sat the AMC on Thursday 9 August.

It has been brought to our attention that the final page of the AMC Upper Primary paper was posted on a social media site late on Thursday evening.  This is most regrettable as there are some schools who, for unavoidable reasons, sit the paper late and their students could potentially have an unfair advantage.  The post was removed later that evening and the AMT will monitor very carefully all papers from schools which have sat the competition after the normal date to look for patterns which might suggest that this leak of information has had some impact.  In general, we have to rely on the good sense of all involved and fortunately, this is a most unusual occurrence.

In 2019 the AMT will remind teachers again of the requirement to collect the competition papers and keep them securely for a week following the competition.
