AMC 10/12 B

AMC 10 B, AMC 12 B

The recent cancellation of SDMC's AMC 10/12 B, forced by decision of the AMC national office, has now been reversed due to new decision by the AMC national office. 

The following is in full effect.


Date:          Wednesday, February 15, 2017
Location:   Applied Physics and Mathematics Building (APM), UCSD Campus, La Jolla
Time:         See session details below
Room:       See session details below

Parking: There is no free parking anywhere on campus during any of our sessions. If you must park, do not use Lot P207, which is strictly unavailable to us on weekdays, even in the evening. We recommend Lot P208, which is immediately west of Lot P207 and a short walk from the exam locations in the APM.  Permits by the hour may be purchased from two automats in Lot P208 using small bills or major credit card.


Security Code: The APM building locks at or about 9pm. After this time, entry usually requires a security code entered into a keypad at the one of the two lobby doors. If you expect to need to enter the APM after 9pm, please email a request for assistance to director@sdmathcircle.org.

signups@sdmathcircle.org

You should receive a confirmation message in reply to your initial signup message sent to this address. Thereafter, please understand that we cannot sustain many threads of correspondence with the many who will participate. Instead, unless you have concerns of an immediacy that cannot wait, please monitor this page for updates and watch for occasional group messages that will be sent to all who have signed up.

SDMC at UCSD is an official "Higher Education Site" for the administration of the AMC 10 and AMC 12. It should be noted that for the purpose of individual recognition and awards, it is generally more favorable for a student to take this exam in his or her school rather than at SDMC if at all possible. We encourage schools to offer these exams on both the A and B dates, as this is the best scenario for student opportunities.

Adult volunteers are needed to support this event as proctors.
