College Recomedations based on AMC

VinnietheGeniusVinnietheGenius Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
Hi Guys!! This was my first year trying out the AMC competitions and I'm in 8th grade. I ended up getting a 16 on Amc8 which really made me feel bad but after practicing I got a 123 on Amc10a and qualified for AIME. Although official results aren't out, I checked my answers and got a 9 on AIME. I am not sure if these are good scores and if I can put these on a college resume sheet in the future? Can some one please help?? Thanks

    A 123 is an amazing score for a 10th grader and unheard of for an 8th graders! Great job! Also, a 9 on the AIME. Your selection index is a 213, so you have a decent chance of even qualifying for USAJMO!

    @VinnietheGenius yes, definitely take note of your AMC/AIME scores as you can usually mention them when applying to colleges (although most schools don't really ask for anything before 8th grade, unless you won MATHCOUNTS or something). A score of 9 on AIME is very good, especially for an 8th grader.
