As you may recall, students took the AMC 8 contest back in November, and we wanted to report on how they did!
The AMC 8 is a 25 question contest, and it's quite challenging. This year, 149,277 students nationwide took the contest. The median (middle) student scored 8 -- less than a third of the questions answered correctly! To score in the top 25% percentile, students had to score at least 11. Only 90 students across the world got a perfect score.
Of the 12 students who took the contest, 9 scored above 8 questions correct, putting them above the nationwide average. Good work, everyone! We are particularly impressed by Ahmed, whose score of 13 puts him the top quartile nationwide. BEAM is sure this a sign of future success yet to come.
