Quick Question about AIME Qualifying

<p>I know that you have to get over 120 or top 1% on AMC10 to qualify for AIME, but when they say 1%, what do they mean? Top one percent in the country? in your school? Anyone know?</p>

<p>All test-takers (country)</p>

<p>By the way, they include that clause because sometimes the top 1% falls below 120. I remember one year the qualifying score dropped 3 points or so, but lately it had been 120.</p>
