Impact of COVID-19 on AMT competitions and programs

AMT is committed to supporting teachers, parents and students with our competitions and programs during the challenges of COVID-19. 

  • All our competitions and programs will continue to run in 2021. 
  • We have contingency plans in place for hot spot, jurisdiction and single-school closures. This allows schools affected by COVID-19 to continue their participation in our programs and competitions.
  • We will offer refunds to schools that are unable to run the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) in 2021 due to COVID-19 government-mandated school closures. 

If you have any questions or issues, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at competitions@amt.edu.au or +61 (02) 6201 5136

Upcoming competitions and programs

The sitting period for Australian Mathematics Competition is three days (Wednesday 4 August to Friday 6 August). This allows your school to schedule sittings in smaller sessions on one or more of these three days. 

Remember you can run the competition fully online but you can still register for a paper option. We recommend you do so as soon as possible to allow for possible slower than normal mail delivery.

Entries close: 30 July (online), 25 June (paper). Find out more.

Our 3-4-week Maths Challenge is running as normal. 

The Maths Challenge is also now available a set of PDFs, perfect for kids learning at home. More information
