AMC 10/12 B

AMC 10 B, AMC 12 B

Date: Wednesday, February 5, 2020

The location and scheduling of SDMC's AMC exams are constrained by the fixed schedule of UCSD classes.

This year, our AMC 10B & 12B will be administered in a single session at a single location and at a single time.

There are no alternative session choices available.

Please note that the "A" date exams and these "B" date exams will be in different locations.

Session Details:

Location: Peterson Hall, Room 108, UCSD Main Campus

Arrive: 7:00pm Receive scantron and complete personal information

Begin Exam: 7:20pm Late arrivals may be seated but will not receive extended time.

End Exam: 8:35pm Students must cooperate with the orderly collection of materials.

Exit: 8:50pm

Drop-off / Pick-up note: Students can be dropped off and/or picked up curbside at Peterson Hall using the small traffic circle at the east end of Muir Lane.

Warning: Parking is NOT free anywhere on campus at any time during the exam periods, and there is no parking available near the exam rooms. Please consult the UCSD maps tool here: and plan your arrival carefully, allowing extra time for parking and walking to the exam rooms. In most parking areas, permitting and payment is now easily handled through the ParkMobile phone app. If you are not yet familiar with this method, please look up Parkmobile in your app store and familiarize yourself with it.


It is often the case that time is lost to confusion over the handling of backpacks and other personal items brought into the exam room that then must be turned in and picked up at the end of the exam period. Worse, the pile of backpacks and other materials collected inevitably contains a live cell phone that produces disturbance during the exam. Please help us to avoid all this unnecessary confusion, delay, and distraction by leaving EVERYTHING at home or with parents except 2-3 sharpened #2 pencils, and perhaps traditional geometry tools (straightedge, compass, etc.). Everything that is needed by a student during the AMC 10 or 12 can fit in a basic pencil case. Please do not bring ANYTHING more into the exam room, even paper. Anything more than a pencil case will be required to be left OUTSIDE the exam room, including personal electronics.

You should receive an 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.
