COVID-19 information 2021

AMC results delayed

Despite the challenges of stay-at-home restrictions, the 2021 Australian Maths Competition (AMC) went ahead with some extensions of time and remote supervision where needed.

We usually release the AMC results in early September but results will be delayed this year due to lock downs in the ACT and across the country. We will be unable to process all results until the stay-at-home restrictions lift in the ACT. We’ll be sure to keep schools updated.

If you have any questions about your school’s participation in this year’s AMC, please contact us at competitions@amt.edu.au or call 02 6201 5136.

Our office is closed until 9am Monday, 18 October

AMT is based in Canberra, and we are under stay-at-home restrictions until 11:59pm on Friday, 15 October 2021. You can still reach us as we are monitoring our phone and emails. If you are buying physical books from our shop, there may be a delay in the delivery. Please take this into account when buying resources and we’ll let you know about delivery times when we can.
