Yeah I just took it. Unfortunately, I can't discuss anything yet. :roll: I'm hoping to win the AMC 12 again this year. :D

Just took 10. Ugh, that was the hardest one I've seen. (I do believe I can say that, it's really general). I got my school won for sure, but I gotta make red MOSP this year...

I took the 12.....myself and the 10th graders that I know about that took it all only answered about 10-14 questions....it was fail. I know a kid in my grade who took the 10 and apparently he did really well.

Got 22.25 at the very least, but 23.25 (left one blank) max. Which is pretty bad, considering that I got 23 last year, and I've improved (i.e. read AoPS books) since. But... yeah, the test was way harder this year.

I figured out I got an 81. Still can't get to the 100 cut-off for the AIME.

On a similar subject, do you guys also do the Math League? If you look here, you'll see how well our school is doing. :|

Our school does the middle school version of PAML, and I did quite well last year.

My school does it too, but there's a weird system. There's a "preliminary test" that everyone in the school has to take, then the people who score the highest take the actual PAML.

Your cutoff is 100? ours is 120, but I think I got only about 106.5. I took AMC 10
