Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) | Australian Maths Trust


Do you have a classroom full of great problem solvers? One way to find out is through the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC)

AMC 2019 is on Thursday 1 August

Australian entries close: 16 July **EXTENDED** (Paper), 25 July (Online)
International entries close: 5 July ** EXTENDED ** (Paper), 25 July (Online)

School-based maths competitions don’t get much bigger than this—with more than 15 million entries since 1978 and students in more than 30 countries attempting the same problems each year.

The school-based competition is suitable for students from lower primary to upper secondary. Entrants in years 3–6 are asked to solve 30 problems in 60 minutes, while those in years 7–12 have 75 minutes to solve more complex problems. The problems get more challenging as the competition progresses, so students of all abilities will be challenged and inspired.

We are a not-for-profit entity and we make our entry fees consistent with our status. 

Entries fees cost $6.50 AUD per student including GST in Australia. The fee varies from time-to-time between countries depending on costs such as postage and freight.

The AMC is available in both printed and online format, it doesn’t matter where your school is located. And, of course, there are special arrangements for visually impaired students and distance education organisations.

For international schools, here is a document regarding the Australian school year equivalents
