AMC 12 students who rank in the top 5% nationally (or score at least 100) will qualify for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME). AMC 10 students who rank in the top 1% nationally (or score at least 120) will also qualify for the AIME. A very difficult contest of 15 questions, the AIME is often looked for in university applications by American Universities. All problems on the AIME can be solved by pre-calculus methods.
