Congrats to two students who have qualified for the USAMO and USAJMO – The United States of America (Junior) Mathematical Olympiad, which will take place on April 19th & 20th.
USAMO – Sruthi Parthasarathi (9th grade)
USAJMO – Richard Liu (10th grade)
In order to qualify for this event, students had to do well in both the AMC 10/12 and the AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME). The AMC was a 15 question, 75 minute examination and the AIME was a 15 question, three hour examination.
The difference between the USAMO and the USAJMO is that USAMO is made up of the top scoring AMC 12 participants (based on a combination of AMC 12 and AIME score) and USAJMO, is made up of the top scoring AMC 10 participants (based on a combination of AMC 10 and AIME score).
The USAMO/USAJMO are six-question proof examinations, spread out over nine hours between two days. U.S. citizens and students studying in the United States and Canada (with qualifying scores) are eligible to take the USAMO and USAJMO.
